Abstract

An additional assumption to that of independence in estimating a missing cell from a 2 × 2 contingency table is proposed. This is applicable where dual systems of data collection have been employed. It is suggested that, particularly where human populations are the source of data, the assumption of independence might reasonably be regarded as providing a lower limit and the additional assumption an upper limit to the value of the missing cell. A practical example is given.
