Abstract:

Two methods, the generalized moment and the regression, both based on the limiting distribution of the multinomial, are given for estimating the parameters in the removal trapping method of estimating animal and insect populations. Some finite sample size results are provided indicating the speed of convergence to the limiting distribution. Numerical examples are also discussed. Author
