Bootstrapping and randomization: Seeing all the moving parts

Friday, November 11th, 20112:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Presented by: Chris J. Wild, University of Auckland


This webinar is a short visual, narrative journey from the vibrating boxplot imagery of the author's 2009 USCOTS Plenary and Wild et al. (2011) to visualisations of bootstrap confidence intervals and, if time permits, randomisation tests. Software under development will be used and made available as-is to any brave souls willing to live on the edge.
