Approximate Confidence Interval for Effect Size Base on Bootstrap Resampling Method
This paper presents the confidence intervals for the
effect size base on bootstrap resampling method. The meta-analytic
confidence interval for effect size is proposed that are easy to
compute. A Monte Carlo simulation study was conducted to compare
the performance of the proposed confidence intervals with the
existing confidence intervals. The best confidence interval method
will have a coverage probability close to 0.95. Simulation results
have shown that our proposed confidence intervals perform well in
terms of coverage probability and expected length.
