A commonly known problem in population size estimation using registers, is that registers do not necessarily cover the whole population. This may be because they intend to cover part of the population (e.g., students), due to administrative delay or because part of the target population is not registered by default (e.g., illegal persons). One of t...

The size of a partly observed population is often estimated with the capture – recapture (for two sources) or multiple – recapture (for multiple sources) estimation method. An important assumption of these models is that records in different sources can be identified such that it is known whether these records belong to the same unit or not, i.e. r...

... United Nations, 2010). CR methods have several assumptions, the most important being independence of data sources and absence of linkage and over-coverage errors (Wolf et al., 2019;Zhang, 2019). ...
... The methodological aspects of capture-recapture methods are also explored by Zult et al. (2021), who deal with the problem of imperfect linkages between the different data sources, which is particularly important if unique keys, such as ID numbers, are not available for linking. The proposed solution extends the earlier special-case methods provided by such authors as Di Tuoto (2015, 2018) for two and three lists, to a general case, utilising the log-linear modelling approach with covariates. ...
