Summary

This data release includes: (1) The data from simulations used to illustrate the behavior of inbreeding rate estimators. Estimating inbreeding rates is particularly difficult for natural populations because parentage information for many individuals may be incomplete. Our analyses illustrate the behavior of a newly-described inbreeding rate estimator that outperforms previously described approaches in the scientific literature. (2) Python source code ("analytical expressions", "computer simulations", and "empricial data set") that can be used to analyze these data.
