Capture-recapture methods offer the potential to reduce the costs of disease registers, and to reduce bias in the estimation of incidence and comparison of population groups. However, the assumptions made when using simple capture-recapture methods are unlikely to be true in epidemiological studies.

BACKGROUND: Publication bias is an important factor that may result in selection bias and lead to overestimation of the intervention effect. In this study, the focus was on using capture-recapture method as a statistical procedure which may possibly be a practical means for measuring the amount of publication bias.

Capture-recapture methods were originally developed in the wildlife biology to monitor the census of bird, fish, and inset populations. Recently, these methods have been utilized considerably in the areas of disease and event monitoring.

The capture-recapture method is scrutinized by some for being unreliable and having too many contributing factors to the outcome. Concerns raised involve whether a sample is taken during migrating season, or if the species lives in an isolated area with no other species involvement that would affect population growth.

Various assumptions underlie all methods of capture-recapture analysis. If the particular animal does not fulfil one or more conditions it might be possible to allow for this to some extent, but a method of analysis should not be applied without ensuring, as far as is practicable, that its inherent assumptions are satisfied.

A variety of methods must be employed when attempting to estimate populations of insect or other pests. One method, used by entomologists and wildlife biologists, is the capture, mark and recapture method. The capture, mark, and recapture method is an alternative sampling method that is particularly useful with mobile or far-ranging species.

This method is known as ‘capture‐recapture’ (CR). Capture‐recapture and diabetes. CR is a method for estimating the number of individuals in a closed population. The method acquired its name because it was developed by zoologists to count wildlife populations. ... Brenner H. Use and limitations of the capture‐recapture method in ...

Mark and recapture is a method commonly used in ecology to estimate an animal population's size. A portion of the population is captured, marked, and released. Later, another portion is captured and the number of marked individuals within the sample is counted.
