By Dankmar Bohning,Peter G.M. van der Heijden,John Bunge

Capture-recapture equipment were utilized in biology and ecology for greater than a hundred years. notwithstanding, it is just lately that those tools became well known within the social and scientific sciences to estimate the scale of elusive populations similar to unlawful immigrants, illicit drug clients, or individuals with a ingesting challenge. Capture-Recapture tools for the Social and clinical Sciences brings jointly vital advancements which permit the applying of those equipment. It has contributions from greater than forty researchers, and is split into 8 elements, together with issues similar to ratio regression versions, capture-recapture meta-analysis, extensions of unmarried and a number of resource versions, latent variable versions and Bayesian methods.

The publication is acceptable for everybody who's drawn to making use of capture-recapture equipment within the social and clinical sciences. in addition, it's also of curiosity to these operating with capture-recapture tools in biology and ecology, as there are a few vital advancements lined within the e-book that still follow to those classical program components.
