Statistical Inference for Apparent Populations

Abstract

In this paper we consider statistical inference for datasets that are not replicable. We call these datasets, which are common in sociology, apparent populations. We review how such data are usually analyzed by sociologists and then suggest that perhaps a Bayesian approach has merit as an alternative. We illustrate our views with an empirical example.
