This quick note serves as a supplementnote of my previous Statistical Notes (3): Confidence Intervals for Binomial Proportion Using SAS which I will extend as a SESUG 2015 paper. Basically I added a new Blaker method to my CI_Single_Proportion.sas file and found more CIs from SAS PROC FREQ. First of all, call the script:...

Posted in SAS | Comments Off on Statistical Notes (3B): Confidence Intervals for Binomial Proportion Using SAS, Updated

In Lex’s library of the latest SAS Global Forum 2015 papers, I found an interesting paper by Wu Gong, Jeffreys Interval for One-Sample Proportion with SAS/STAT Software, where SAS MCMC procedure and a so called Random Walk Metropolis Algorithm were implemented to calculate the Jeffreys interval for binomial proportion. Years ago I wrote several...

Posted in SAS | Comments Off on Confidence Intervals for Binomial Proportion (Again): A Quick Note

For the computing of confidence intervals for difference between two independent binomial proportions in SAS 9.4/STAT 12.3, it’s hard to figure out exactly how many methods are available because there is no “CL=ALL” trigger in RISKDIFF option (but you can get one in BIONOMIAL option to compute the confidence intervals for binomial proportion). As...

Posted in SAS | Comments Off on Confidence Intervals for Difference Between Independent Binomial Proportions: A SAS 9.4/STAT 12.3 Update

After getting the access to SAS 9.4 alone with SAS/STAT 12.3, I first took a look at my favorite SAS statistical procedure, PROF FREQ. Last year I had a note on confidence intervals for binomial proportion based on SAS 9.2/SAS9.3. Now it’s time to throw out some updates. 1. A new confidence limits method...

A guy notices a bunch of targets scattered over a barn wall, and in the center of each, in the "bulls-eye," is a bullet hole. "Wow," he says to the farmer, "that’s pretty good shooting. How’d you do it?" "Oh," says the farmer, "it was easy. I painted the targets after I shot the...

Posted in SAS | Comments Off on Statistical Notes (3): Confidence Intervals for Binomial Proportion Using SAS

The following two papers by Professor Robert Newcombe, in my limit observation, are the most frequently cited papers in the industry:
Two-sided confidence intervals for the single proportion: comparison of seven methods. Newcombe RG, Stat Med , Volume 17 , 8 (April 1998) pp.857-872
Interval estimation for the difference...
