The expansion for the error distribution of sample median and its random weighting statistic

  • Zheng Zhongguo 


In this paper, the expansion for the error distribution of the sample median is obtained. To mimic the error distribution of the sample median, random weighting statistic is introduced. It is proved in this paper that the precision of the approximation of the error distribution for sample median by random weighting method is of the order ofo(1/√n).
