The Size and Power of Bootstrap Tests

Author

  • Mackinnon, J-G

Abstract

Bootstrap tests are tests for which the significance level is calculated by some sort of boostrap procedure, which may be parametric or nonparametric. We show that, in many circumstances, the size distortion of a bootstrap P value for a test will be one whole order of magnitude smaller than that of the correpondign asymptotic P value.
