Statistical methods for ecological inference are advanced. The drawback of ecological inference at present is not the availability of statistical methodology but the lack of information. More reliable inference can be made with the combination of aggregate and individual level data, i.e. survey data. Recent developments within the last ten years in sophisticated statistical methods bring the solution of ecological inference close to data analysts.
