Abstract:

Very little had been done in the past to develop coherent stochastic structures for the location of individuals in a region. Such a structure can provide sound probabilistic bases for a variety of inference procedures presented in the literature and clear the way to the development of consistent statistical methodology. Various probabilistic models for the random locations of individuals in a region are considered. Models for both infinite and finite regions are developed. In the literature, certain marginal distributions are used to characterize the numbers of individuals in subregions. Relationships between these marginal distributions and our probabilitistic models are discussed. Author
