    Estimators are presented for the simultaneous estimation of p means of Poisson variables. These have significantly smaller mean square errors of estimation in the region of a pre-specified set of values, and are conservative, in the sense that their mean errors are never worse than that of the minimum variance unbiased estimator, when p > 3.
