Abstract. Methods for deriving empirical Bayes estimators are generally available. Corresponding general techniques for assessing the performance of these estimators are not widely developed yet, however. In this paper we provide a general procedure for assessing and comparing the performance of the empirical Bayes estimators and other estimators in a given data set.
Key words and phrases: Unequal component sample sizes, empirical Bayes, linear EB, assessment of performance, comparison with MLE.
