Patio expansion with pavers: how much settling with vibrating compactor?

Should I set my new pavers a little higher than the existing patio to account for settling from the final pass with the vibrating compactor? If so, how much settling is typical at this stage?

Edit: finally found some info here. Seems 3/8 of an inch (or 10mm) is what to expect.
