—Two-pass backpack electrofishing data collected as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Quality Assessment Program were analyzed to assess the efficacy of single-pass backpack electrofishing. A two-capture removal model was used to estimate, within 10 river basins across the United States, proportional fish species richness from one-pass(More)
Data swapping, a term introduced in 1978 by Dalenius and Reiss for a new method of statistical disclosure protection in confidential data bases, has taken on new meanings and been linked to new statistical methodologies over the intervening twenty-five years. This paper revis-its the original (1982) published version of the the Dalenius-Reiss data swapping(More)
To investigate fast human reaching movements in 3D, we asked 11 right-handed persons to catch a tennis ball while we tracked the movements of their arms. To ensure consistent trajectories of the ball, we used a catapult to throw the ball from three different positions. Tangential velocity profiles of the hand were in general bell-shaped and hand movements(More)
Density estimates based on point processes are often restrained to regions with irregular boundaries or holes. We propose a density estimator, the lattice-based density estimator, which produces reasonable density estimates under these circumstances. The estimation process starts with overlaying the region with nodes, linking these together in a lattice and(More)
—Fish community data collected from 24 major river basins between 1993 and 1998 as part of the U.S. Geological Survey's National Water-Quality Assessment Program were analyzed to assess multiple-reach (three consecutive reaches) and multiple-year (three consecutive years) variability in samples collected at a site. Variability was assessed using the(More)
We present a deconvolution estimator for the density function of a random variable from a set of independent replicate measurements. We assume that measurements are made with normally distributed errors having unknown and possibly heterogeneous variances. The estimator generalizes the deconvoluting kernel density estimator of Stefanski and Carroll (1990),(More)
We present a semi-parametric deconvolution estimator for the density function of a random variable biX that is measured with error, a common challenge in many epidemiological studies. Traditional deconvolution estimators rely only on assumptions about the distribution of X and the error in its measurement, and ignore information available in auxiliary(More)
