#' Estimating Hidden Population Size using Respondent Driven Sampling Data
#' 
#' An integrated set of tools to estimate the size of a networked population
#' based on respondent-driven sampling data. The "sspse" packages is part of
#' the "RDS Analyst" suite of packages for the analysis of respondent-driven
#' sampling data.  For a list of functions type:
#' help(package='sspse')
#' 
#' For a complete list of the functions, use \code{library(help="sspse")} or
#' read the rest of the manual.
