eco: Ecological Inference in 2x2 Tables

Implements the Bayesian and likelihood methods proposed in Imai, Lu, and Strauss (2008 <DOI: 10.1093/pan/mpm017>) and (2011 <DOI:10.18637/jss.v042.i05>) for ecological inference in 2 by 2 tables as well as the method of bounds introduced by Duncan and Davis (1953). The package fits both parametric and nonparametric models using either the Expectation-Maximization algorithms (for likelihood models) or the Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms (for Bayesian models). For all models, the individual-level data can be directly incorporated into the estimation whenever such data are available. Along with in-sample and out-of-sample predictions, the package also provides a functionality which allows one to quantify the effect of data aggregation on parameter estimation and hypothesis testing under the parametric likelihood models.
