  • ABSTRACT Estimation using pooled sampling has long been an area of interest in the group testing literature. Such research has focused primarily on the assumed use of fixed sampling plans (i), although some recent papers have suggested alternative sequential designs that sample until a predetermined number of positive tests (ii). One major consideration, including in the new work on sequential plans, is the construction of debiased estimators that either reduce or keep the mean square error… CONTINUE READING
