Calibration of Biased Sampling Procedures
Sampling without a well defined frame potentially leads to biased inferences. We consider procedures developed for estimation of selection functions in the study of natural selection and procedures for correction of size-biased samples to give a general theory for correction of biased samples. Applications are made to the correction of selection bias in samples of insects collected by trapping.
