Nested-error regression models are widely used for analyzing clustered data.
For example, they are often applied to two-stage sample surveys, and in biology
and econometrics. Prediction is usually the main goal of such analyses, and
mean-squared prediction error is the main way in which prediction performance
is measured. In this paper we suggest a new approach to estimating mean-squared
prediction error. We introduce a matched-moment, double-bootstrap algorithm,
enabling the notorious...[Show more]
