Bootstrap confidence intervals

Description

Bootstrap confidence intervals for the output of function bootstrap. Up to five different interval estimation methods can be called simultaneously: the normal approximation, the basic bootstrap, the percentile method, the bias corrected and accelerated method (BCa), and the studentized bootstrap method.

Usage


ci.boot(x, method = "all", sigma.t = NULL, conf = 0.95)

Arguments

x

For ci.boot the list output from bootstrap.

method

CI interval method to be used. One of "all", "norm", "basic", "perc", "BCa", or "student". Partial matches are allowed.

sigma.t

Vector of standard errors in association with studentized intervals.

conf

Confidence level; 1 - P(Type I error).
