Evaluation of Jackknife and Bootstrap for Defining Confidence Intervals for Pairwise Agreement Measures

Figure 3

Method used to calculate the coverage and average amplitude of the confidence intervals.

The parameters R, C, alpha and beta are used to generate a PFT, determining the number of rows, columns and the distribution of cluster size along rows and columns. The population parameter is calculated from the PFT. The sampling process is simulated generating 1000 CTs with N elements. The confidence interval is calculated for each one of the CTs. Finally, the coverage is calculated as the fraction of confidence intervals including the population estimate. An average amplitude of the 1000 CIs is also calculated.
