(counts, r=10)[source]¶ Calculate single point estimate of conditional uncovered probability.
State: Experimental as of 0.4.0.
 Parameters
 Returns
Single point estimate of the conditional uncovered probability. May be
np.nan
if a point estimate could not be computed. Return type
double

Notes
This function is just a wrapper around the full point estimator described in Theorem 2 (i) in 1, intended to be called for a single best estimate on a complete sample. This function is not guaranteed to return estimated uncovered probabilities less than 1 if the coverage is too low.
