Statistical Inference

  • 2006 Accesses

Abstract

We use box models to illustrate statistical significance. We use simulation to understand sampling distributions and confidence intervals. We then look at simulation-based methods for statistical inference—the bootstrap and permutation tests.

Keywords

  • Simulation
  • Sampling distribution
  • Confidence intervals
  • Bootstrap
  • Permutation tests
