    ABSTRACT: The paper develops some objective priors for correlation coefficient of the bivariate normal distribution. The criterion used is the asymptotic matching of coverage probabilities of Bayesian credible intervals with the corresponding frequentist coverage probabilities. The paper uses various matching criteria, namely, quantile matching, highest posterior density matching, and matching via inversion of test statistics. Each matching criterion leads to a different prior for the parameter of interest. We evaluate their performance by comparing credible intervals through simulation studies. In addition, inference through several likelihood-based methods have been discussed.

    ABSTRACT: The paper considers small domain estimation of the proportion of persons without health insurance for different minority groups. The small domains are cross-classified by age, sex and other demographic characteristics. Both hierarchical and empirical Bayes estimation methods are used. Also, second order accurate approximations of the mean squared errors of the empirical Bayes estimators and bias-corrected estimators of these mean squared errors are provided. The general methodology is illustrated with estimates of the proportion of uninsured persons for several cross-sections of the Asian subpopulation.
