tipsae: Tools for Handling Indices and Proportions in Small Area Estimation

It allows for mapping proportions and indicators defined on the unit interval. It implements Beta-based small area methods comprising the classical Beta regression models, the Flexible Beta model and Zero and/or One Inflated extensions (Janicki 2020 <doi:10.1080/03610926.2019.1570266>). Such methods, developed within a Bayesian framework through Stan <>, come equipped with a set of diagnostics and complementary tools, visualizing and exporting functions. A Shiny application with a user-friendly interface can be launched to further simplify the process. For further details, refer to De Nicolò and Gardini (2024 <doi:10.18637/jss.v108.i01>).
