Abstract/OtherAbstract:
An easy-to-compute statistic for estimating the ascertainment probability is proposed. This statistic is determined through the use of the maximum-likelihood principle and, therefore, in addition to being easy to compute, has the desirable properties of a maximum-likelihood statistic. Variance tables are given to facilitate computation of the estimate and its variance.
