Correlation and Regression bootstrap approach to making inferences about the correlation coefficient and the slope of a regression line Bivariate Bootstrap Sampling random sample ( X i , Y i ) i = 1 , . . ., n bivariate bootstrap sample: n n possible bootstrap samples bootstrap confidence interval for (a) draw a speified number of vibarate bootstrap samples of size n from the data with replacement (b) compute the bootstrap Pearson correlation coefficient r b for each bootstrap sample (c) a confidence interval from the distribution of the r b s. BCA method prefered / residual method has the undesirable property limits developed for the vibariate normal distribution Z = 1 2 ln parenleftbigg 1 + r 1 r parenrightbigg N parenleftbigg 1 2 ln parenleftbigg 1 + 1 parenrightbigg , 1 n 3 parenrightbigg 100(1 )% confidence interval (1 + r ) e c (1 r ) (1 + r ) e c + (1 r ) < < (1 + r ) e c (1 r ) (1 + r ) e c + (1 r ) where c = 2 z / 2 / n 3 1 Fixed X Bootstrap Sampling regression model Y = h ( X ) + iid (0 , 2 ) when the X s are regarded as fixed, sample the errors and then add on an estimate of the mean function h ( X ) to get the bootstrap sample (a) hatwidest h ( x ) of the mean function h ( x ) (b) e i = Y i hatwider h (...
