    Calculating the amount of underestimation

    Coverage rate for a parameter is 91.2%, and the nominal coverage rate is 95%. If the confidence interval is based on asymptotic standard normal, then the amount of coverage 91.2% implies that the standard errors for the parameter is estimated about 15% too small. Because z* value used to make a...

    C.I. for Bin(n,p) using pivots.

    Problem: Let $X$ be $Bin(n,p)$ and $\hat p = X/n$, and $$Z=\frac{\hat p - p}{\sqrt{p(1-p)/n}}$$ We see that $Z$ is asymptotically $N(0,1)$. Find a $1-\alpha$ confidence interval for $p$. Note that this is very different from the regular $$\frac{\hat p - p}{\sqrt{\hat p(1-\hat p)/n}}$$...
