Abstract: 

The size and characteristics of people with AIDS, drug addicts or hallucinogenic drug users, criminals, street children and rare animals in a zone are subjects that have been noticed by social science, demography, ecology and epidemiology researchers. The size of these populations, their distributions, their percentages in total population and such kinds of variables have always been interesting. Special methods should be applied for investigating these populations that because of their characteristics are called rare, hidden or hard-to-count. For investigating these populations one of the most important topics is finding their size. In this regard different methods have been introduced which the most important ones have been dealt with in this article. Although the main purpose of this article is to introduce relatively new method which mostly has been used in sociology and that’s estimation of these populations by using personal social networks. This method has been described completely in sections 4-3 and 5-3.
