Bootstrapping (statistics)

bootstrapbootstrappingbootstrap support
Efron is especially known for proposing the bootstrap resampling technique, which has had a major impact in the field of statistics and virtually every area of statistical application.
The bootstrap was published by Bradley Efron in "Bootstrap methods: another look at the jackknife" (1979), inspired by earlier work on the jackknife.

Observed information

In a notable article, Bradley Efron and David V. Hinkley argued that the observed information should be used in preference to the expected information when employing normal approximations for the distribution of maximum-likelihood estimates.
