These statistical programs are JavaScript implementations of statistical procedures that were justified in joint work with Mark Finkelstein and Howard G. Tucker. The objective of the research was to produce confidence intervals with a guaranteed coverage probability. This means that the confidence level of the interval found is provably at least as large as the specified level. This property does not hold for many traditional intervals whose justification rests on asymptotic theory. Details regarding the theory behind these procedures can be found in published journal articles which are referenced in the page for each app. Use these programs at your own risk. The source code for each app is also available from the apps page.
