Abstract

The purpose of the article is to demonstrate the use of the jackknife and the bootstrap for interval estimation of the product-moment correlation coefficient. After a general exposition, the two techniques are applied to a real data set. The relative merits of these methods as compared to the normal theory are discussed.
