The Size Distortion Of Bootstrap Tests

Abstract

Bootstrap tests are tests for which the significance level is calculated by some sort of bootstrap procedure, which may be parametric or nonparametric. We provide a theoretical framework in which to study the size distorsions of bootstrap P values. We show that, in many circumstances, the size distorsion of a bootstrap test will be one whole order of magnitude smaller than that of the corresponding asymptotic test.
