Description/Abstract

We consider the method of distance sampling described in Buckland, Anderson, Burnham and Laake in 1993. We explore the properties of the methodology in simple cases chosen to allow direct and accessible comparisons of distance sampling in the design- and model-based frameworks. In particular, we obtain expressions for the bias and variance of the distance sampling estimator of object density and for the expected value of the recommended analytic variance estimator within eachframework. These results enable us to clarify aspects of the performance of the methodology which may be of interest to users and potential users of distance sampling.
