In capture–recapture experiments, covariates collected on individuals, such as body weight and length, are often measured imprecisely or are missing at random. Furthermore, the number of recorded covariate measurements collected on each observed individual is usually equal to or less than the individual’s capture frequency. Correcting for multiple error-prone covariate is seldom seen in capture–recapture models and even fewer research have considered cases where individual’s have no…

Maximum likelihood abundance estimation from capture‐recapture data when covariates are missing at random

Simulations indicate that the proposed maximum empirical likelihood (EL) estimation approach for the abundance in the presence of missing covariates has a smaller mean square error than existing estimators, and the proposed EL ratio confidence interval usually has more accurate coverage probabilities than the existing Wald-type confidence intervals.

Multiple imputation and functional methods in the presence of measurement error and missingness in explanatory variables

This paper considers likelihood-based multiple imputation to handle missing data, and combines this with two well-known functional measurement error methods: simulation-extrapolation and corrected score to substantially reduce bias and mean squared errors in regression coefficients.

Semiparametric empirical likelihood inference for abundance from one‐inflated capture–recapture data

Abundance estimation from capture–recapture data is of great importance in many disciplines. Analysis of capture–recapture data is often complicated by the existence of one‐inflation and

Estimation in closed capture–recapture models when covariates are missing at random

It is shown that, in general, such a naive complete-case analysis in closed capture-recapture models with some covariates missing at random underestimates the population size.

Estimation in capture–recapture models when covariates are subject to measurement errors and missing data

For capture–recapture models when covariates are subject to measurement errors and missing data, a set of estimating equations is constructed to estimate population size and relevant parameters.

EFFECTIVE USE OF MULTIPLE ERROR-PRONE COVARIATE MEASUREMENTS IN CAPTURE-RECAPTURE MODELS

We study capture-recapture models in a closed population when multiple error-prone measurements of a covariate are available. Due to the identity between the number of captures and the number of

A Measurement Error Model for Heterogeneous Capture Probabilities in Mark-Recapture Experiments: An Estimating Equation Approach

Logistic models for capture probabilities that depend on covariates are effective if the covariates can be measured exactly. If there is measurement error so that a surrogate for the covariate is

Effects of measurement error and conditional score estimation in capture-recapture models

This article proposes a new conditional score estimation to adjust for measurement error in capture-recapture models and estimates regression parameters and population size consistently without imposing any distributional assumption on the covariates.

I review the use of auxiliary variables in capture-recapture models for estimation of demographic parameters (e.g. capture probability, population size, survival probability, and recruitment,

Heterogeneous Capture–Recapture Models with Covariates: A Partial Likelihood Approach for Closed Populations

Here the efficiency of the partial likelihood approach is examined, which allows the analysis of a capture–recapture experiment to be conducted using commonly available software and is applied to several data sets.

Estimation in Capture‐Recapture Models When Covariates Are Subject to Measurement Errors

This work considers estimation problems in capture-recapture models when the covariates or the auxiliary variables are measured with errors, and derives a regression parameter estimator using a regression calibration method.

Analysing capture–recapture data when some variables of heterogeneous catchability are not collected or asked in all registrations

The usefulness of these types of covariates is evaluated and furthermore a methodology for analysing such capture-recapture data is presented and illustrated by applying it to data on neural tube defects in the Netherlands.

Analysis of Capture-Recapture Data

The Cormorant data set, a model for estimating abundance in open populations, and Hierarchical modelling to allow for dependence of data sets are studied.
