eiCompare: Compares Different Ecological Inference Methods

Provides a comprehensive suite of tools for estimating the candidate preferences of racial/ethnic voting blocs in elections. Includes functions for predicting voter race/ethnicity and conducting ecological inference. Race/ethnicity prediction builds on race prediction developed by Imai et al. (2016) <doi:10.1093/pan/mpw001>. Ecological inference methods are based on King (1997) <ISBN: 0691012407>, <https://gking.harvard.edu/eicamera/kinroot.html>; King et. al. (2004) <ISBN: 0521542804>, <https://gking.harvard.edu/files/abs/ecinf04-abs.shtml>.
