Capture - Recapture Sampling
« on: March 27, 2016, 05:04:50 PM »
One of the popular method to estimate the total number of individuals in a population is by capture-recapture sampling. In capture-recapture sampling, an initial sample is obtained and marked. A second sample is obtained independently and it is noted how many of the individuals in that sample was marked.

Example 1: To estimate the abundance of an animal population such as the deer population in the state of Pennsylvania.

Example 2: To estimate the total number of homeless individuals in a given city.

Is there any differences between random and stochastic sampling?
