Per Gösta Andersson: Approximate confidence intervals for a binomial proportion

Lecturer: Per Gösta Andersson, Department of Statistics
Location: Room B705, Department of Statistics, Stockholm University
The construction of a confidence interval for the binomial parameter p is an elementary, yet not trivial, problem. Many procedures, using e.g. normal approximation, have been suggested over the years, some of which will be presented and commented upon. Priority will be given to accurate coverage probabilities, although interval lengths are important to take into consideration.
