After a quarter of an hour of English dictionary consultation (to translate
your first sentence), I think to have concluded that perhaps my English is
as bad as my 'statisticish'.
My density estimate is obtained by 'averaging' the position of deer by
radiotelemetry, i.e., given a population in a place, I put some boundaries
on a map, and I count the fraction of positions of the radiotagged sample of
the population that are inside these boundaries. My aim is to obtain in this
way the 'average density' in that place.
Do you think this procedure could avoid the problems that deer mobility can
give to the reliability of the confidence interval? And then, as I never
listened about positioning error contribution to the nugget, where could I
find some references?
Thank you very much!
