Capture-recapture methods in epidemiology analyze data from overlapping lists of cases from various sources of ascertainment to generate estimates of missing cases and the total affected. Applications of these methods usually recognize the possibility of, and attempt to adjust for, nonindependent ascertainment by the various sources used. However, separate from the issue of dependencies between sources is the complexity of within source variation in probability of ascertainment of cases, e.g… CONTINUE READING
