Use resampling techniques to estimate descriptive statistics and confidence intervals from sample data when parametric test assumptions are not met, or for small samples from non-normal distributions. Bootstrap methods choose random samples with replacement from the sample data to estimate confidence intervals for parameters of interest. Jackknife systematically recalculates the parameter of interest using a subset of the sample data, leaving one observation out of the subset each time (leave-one-out resampling). From these calculations, it estimates the parameter of interest for the entire data sample. If you have a Parallel Computing Toolbox™ license, you can use parallel computing to speed up resampling calculations.
