Overview of Bootstrapping for 1-Sample Function

Use Bootstrapping for 1-Sample Function to explore the sampling distribution of a specified statistic of a sample of data and to estimate a confidence interval for the population parameter. You can choose from the following statistics:
  • Median
  • Sum
  • Variance
  • Standard deviation

For example, an environmental scientist wants to estimate the median amount of calcium in water from the wells in a geographical region. The scientist uses a bootstrap for the median to examine the sampling distribution of the median and to estimate a confidence interval for the median amount of calcium in the water.
