Course in Resampling Statistics
An introduction to the "new statistics" of resampling will
be offered March 20-22 in Washington, DC. Resampling -
bootstrap, permutation, and other tests - has revolutionized
the field of statistics. Resampling is now the method of
choice for confidence limits, hypothesis tests, and other
everyday inferential problems.
Resampling is for both experts and non-statisticians. With
resampling procedures you use the given sample data to
repeatedly simulate hypothetical "re-samples", recalculating
the statistic of interest. No "black-box" formulas will
hide the underlying statistical procedure.
This is an introductory course, with no specific pre-
requisites, though a familiarity with basic probability and
descriptive statistics will help.
