PEGroupTesting-package: Population Proportion Estimation using Group Testing

Description Author(s) References Examples

Description

The population proportion using group testing can be estimated by different methods. Four functions including p.mle(), p.gart(), p.burrow() and p.order() are provided to implement four estimating methods including the maximum likelihood estimate, Gart's estimate, Burrow's estimate, and order statistic estimate.
