Using Commonly Available Software for Conducting Bootstrap Analyses.
Fan, Xitao
Bootstrap analysis, both for nonparametric statistical inference and for describing sample results stability and replicability, has been gaining prominence among quantitative researchers in educational and psychological research. Procedurally, however, it is often quite a challenge for quantitative researchers to implement bootstrap analysis in their research because bootstrap analysis is typically not an automated program option in statistical software programs. This paper uses a few heuristic analytical examples to show how bootstrap analysis can be accomplished through the use of some commonly available statistical software programs. Until bootstrap analysis becomes an automated program option in standard statistical software programs (e.g., the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences or the Statistical Analysis System), quantitative researchers may have to make do with these or other creative approaches to accomplish bootstrap analysis in their research.
