lllcrc: Local Log-linear Models for Capture-Recapture

Applies local log-linear capture-recapture models (LLLMs) for closed populations, as described in the doctoral thesis of Zachary Kurtz. The method is relevant when there are 3-5 capture occasions, with auxiliary covariates available for all capture occasions. As part of estimating the number of missing population units, the method estimates the "rate of missingness" as it varies over the covariate space. In addition, user-friendly functions are provided to recreate (approximately) the method of Zwane and van der Heijden (2004), which applied the VGAM package in a way that is closely related to LLLMs.
