Bootstrap problems For the first six problems, analyze the variables Chlorophyll.a from the Chlorophyll.xls dataset and TcCB from the TcCB-Cleanup.xls dataset. 1. For which of these two variables do you expect the confidence intervals from the t distribution to be more reliable? Why? 2. Calculate the bootstrap 95% CI of the mean for each of the variables. Which interval is best in each case? How do the bootstrap CIs compare with the CIs from the t distribution? 3. Bootstrap the standard deviation of each variable. What is the bias in each case? 4. Using 1000 bootstrap replicates, repeat step 3 five times. How much does the bias estimate vary? 5. For one of the variables, repeat step 4 using 100 bootstrap replicates, and using 10,000 bootstrap replicates. 6. What is the approximate bootstrap P value for the null hypothesis that the mean TcCB concentration is greater than or equal to 6? 7. Fit the logistic regression model that relates Willingness To Pay for pharmaceutical

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
