#' Fast Probabilistic Record Linkage with Missing Data
#'
#' \code{fastLink} implements methods developed by Enamorado, Fifield, and Imai (2018)
#' ''Using a Probabilistic Model to Assist Merging of Large-scale Administrative Records'',
#' to probabilistically merge large datasets using the Fellegi-Sunter model
#' while allowing for missing data and the inclusion of auxiliary information.
#' The current version of this package conducts a merge of two datasets under
#' the Fellegi-Sunter model, using the Expectation-Maximization Algorithm. In addition,
#' tools for conducting and summarizing data merges are included.
