From: Capture-recapture analysis of all-cause mortality data in Bohol, Philippines

Method/Model Total estimated deaths Crude mortality rate (deaths per 1,000 population)
Low estimates   
2-source analysis (combined LCR and health center) including unknown age deaths (with age redistributed by source category) by age 8459 (8226-8692) 7.39 (7.19 - 7.60)
3-source analysis with the 1-2 model using ages redistributed by total age distribution 8457 (8422-8493) 7.39 (7.36 - 7.42)
3-source analysis with the 1-2 model using ages redistributed by total age distribution calculated separately for <5 yrs, 5-14 yrs, and 15+ years) 8481 (8413 - 8546) 7.41 (7.35 - 7.47)
High estimates   
3-source analysis (including unknown age deaths without age distribution) - saturated model 8983 (8748-9218) 7.85 (7.64 - 8.06)
3-source analysis with the saturated model using ages redistributed by total age distribution (calculated separately for <5 yrs, 5-14 yrs, and 15+ years) 8964 (8676 - 9305) 7.83 (7.58 - 8.13)
3-source analysis calculated separately for <5 yrs (1-2), 5-14 yrs (1-2), and 15+ years (saturated) 9006 (8734 - 9275) 7.87 (7.63 - 8.11)
Averages   
Average of all accepted estimates with maximum 95% confidence intervals (as calculated by any method) 8725 (8354 - 9266) 7.62 (7.19 - 8.13)
