Aerial surveys can efficiently monitor populations of large animals in geographically extensive management units but are time‐ and cost‐intensive. Demographic ratio data from aerial surveys are an important component of population monitoring and management, yet the error of ratio data remains under‐appreciated, especially for low‐density populations.
