Univariate Discrete Responses
Perhaps the simplest discrete data problem involves single-sample binary responses. This section considers point and interval estimation for such data. The techniques are described in some detail since they are most easily understood in this simple setting and since analogs of these methods have been developed for many of the more complicated discrete data problems discussed in later sections.
