maSAE: Mandallaz' Model-Assisted Small Area Estimators

An S4 implementation of the unbiased extension of the model- assisted synthetic-regression estimator proposed by Mandallaz (2013) <doi:10.1139/cjfr-2012-0381>, Mandallaz et al. (2013) <doi:10.1139/cjfr-2013-0181> and Mandallaz (2014) <doi:10.1139/cjfr-2013-0449>. It yields smaller variances than the standard bias correction, the generalised regression estimator.
