There are several methods for calculating confidence intervals based on the bootstrap samples (this paper provides explanation and guidance). One very simple method for calculating a 95%-confidence interval is just calculating the empirical 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles of the bootstrap samples (seethis interval is called the bootstrap percentile interval; see code below). The simple percentile interval method is rarely used in practice as there are better methods, such as the bias-corrected and accelerated bootstrap (BCa). BCa intervals adjust for both bias and skewness in the bootstrap distribution.

The biasbias is simply estimated as the difference between the mean of the $n$ stored bootstrap samples and the original estimatesestimate(s).

Let's replicate the example from the website but using our own loop incorporating the ideas I've outlined above (drawing repeadetlyrepeatedly with replacement):

Compare the "bias" columns and the "std. error" with the "sd" column of our own summary table. Our 95%-confidence intervals are very similar to the confidence intervals calculated by boot.ci using the percentile method (not all though: look at the lower limit of parameter with index 9).

There are several methods for calculating confidence intervals based on the bootstrap samples (this paper provides explanation and guidance). One very simple method is just calculating the 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles of the bootstrap samples (see code below).

The bias is simply estimated as the difference between the bootstrap samples and the original estimates.

Compare the "bias" columns and the "std. error" with the "sd" column of our own summary table.

There are several methods for calculating confidence intervals based on the bootstrap samples (this paper provides explanation and guidance). One very simple method for calculating a 95%-confidence interval is just calculating the empirical 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles of the bootstrap samples (this interval is called the bootstrap percentile interval; see code below). The simple percentile interval method is rarely used in practice as there are better methods, such as the bias-corrected and accelerated bootstrap (BCa). BCa intervals adjust for both bias and skewness in the bootstrap distribution.

The bias is simply estimated as the difference between the mean of the $n$ stored bootstrap samples and the original estimate(s).

Compare the "bias" columns and the "std. error" with the "sd" column of our own summary table. Our 95%-confidence intervals are very similar to the confidence intervals calculated by boot.ci using the percentile method (not all though: look at the lower limit of parameter with index 9).

There are several "flavours" or forms of the bootstrap (e.g. non-parametric, parametric, residual resampling and many more). The bootstrap in the example is called a non-parametric bootstrap, or case resampling (see here, here, here and here for applications in regression). The basic idea is that you treat your sample as population and repeatedly draw new samples from it with replacement. All original observations have equal probability of being drawn into the new sample. After drawing the new samples from your sample,Then you calculate and store the statistic(s) of interest, this may be athe mean, athe median or regression coefficients using the newly drawn sample. This is repeated $n$ times. In each iteration, some observations from your original sample are drawn multiple times while some observations may not be sampleddrawn at all. After the$n$ iterations, you have $n$ stored bootstrap estimates of the statistic(s) of interest (e.g. if $n=1000$ and the statistic of interest is the mean, you have 1000 bootstrapped estimates of the mean). Lastly, summary statistics such as the mean, median and the standard deviationsdeviation of the $n$ bootstrap-estimates are calculated.

There are several methods for calculating confidence intervals based on the bootstrap samples (this paper provides explanation and guidance). One very simple method is just calculating the 2.55th and 97.5%5th percentiles of the bootstrap samples (see code below).
