split-sample: Split Sample for Binomial Data

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

Description

Sample splitting, according to Hall, 2014.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

Number of successes

n

Number of trials

Details

These functions implement sample splitting of a binomial rate.

Note that the results depend on the state of the random number generator, and are therefore not strictly deterministic.

Value

A vector with the rate p = X/N, obtained with sample splitting.
