Abstract

All statistical techniques place limitations on the types of data and the range of inferences that can be accomodated. All computional implementations of these statistical techniques impose further limitations due to algorithmic and low-level computational implementations. Failure to understand these issues can lead to gross misperceptions and seriously incorrect inferences. In this work we examine the numerical accuracy of King's (1997) approach, to ecological inference by using data perturbation, error analysis, and comparative reliability assessment.
