- In statistics a quasi-maximum likelihood
**estimate**(QMLE), also known as a pseudo-likelihood estimate or a composite likelihood estimate, is an estimate of a parameter "θ" in a statistical model that is formed by maximizing a function that is related to the logarithm of the likelihood function, but in discussing the consistency and (asymptotic) variance-covariance matrix, we assume some parts of the distribution may be mis-specified. - Note that "m"/"k" cannot be used naively (or rather ("m" + "m"/"k" − 1)/"k") as an
**estimate**of the standard error "SE", as the standard error of an estimator is based on the "population" maximum (a parameter), and using an estimate to estimate the error in that very estimate is circular reasoning. - Mark Tauger has estimated a harvest of 45 million tons, an

**estimate**is not zero and consider other estimators obtained by multiplying the raw estimate by a certain parameter. - Wapishana population totals around 9,441 in Brazil (2014
