Chapter 6: Elementary parameter estimation

  • p. 150, eqn. (6.1): `` $h(r \mid N R, n)$'' should be `` $h(r \mid N, R, n)$''.

  • p. 158, eqn. (6.44): the right-hand side of the equality should have a factor of ${N \choose n+1}^{-1}$ instead of ${N \choose n+1}$.

  • p. 181, eqns. (6.117) and (6.118): The symbol $\theta$ appearing in these equations is not mentioned anywhere else in the section; should it instead be $\phi$?

Miscellaneous commentary

  • p. 190, section 6.20: The taxicab problem was reviewed by Leo A. Goodman (Serial number analysis. JASA 47: 622-634, 1952). [Contributed by Nick Cox.]
