A regression estimator for a roaming dog population

A REGRESSION ESTIMATOR FOR A ROAMING DOG POPULATION

 

 

 

The following downloads allow roaming dog counts in randomly-selected sample wards to be used to estimate the numbers of roaming dogs in the wards that were not selected. The estimator uses the values of one or more quantitative or qualitative predictor variables available for each ward to generate a spatial distribution of dog numbers over the city and an estimate of the total number of dogs. That estimate is for all the roaming dogs in the city if sight-resight methods were used to estimate the number in each selected ward. If there was just a count of roaming dogs in each selected ward it is for the total number roaming the city at the time of those counts. Please use the estimator with the help of the usage document. The program uses standard estimation techniques under a variety of error models and includes a simulation facility to evaluate the performance of the estimator under different assumptions.
