• resample() simulate observations from a multinomial distribution.

• bootstrap() generate bootstrap estimations of a statistic.

• jackknife() generate jackknife estimations of a statistic.

## Usage

resample(object, ...)

# S4 method for DiversityIndex
bootstrap(object, n = 1000, f = NULL)

# S4 method for DiversityIndex
jackknife(object)

# S4 method for numeric
resample(object, do, n, size = sum(object), ..., f = NULL)

## Arguments

object

A numeric vector of count data (absolute frequencies).

...

Extra arguments passed to do.

n

A non-negative integer specifying the number of bootstrap replications.

f

A function that takes a single numeric vector (the result of do) as argument.

do

A function that takes object as an argument and returns a single numeric value.

size

A non-negative integer specifying the sample size.

## Value

If f is NULL, resample() returns the n values of do. Else, returns the result of f applied to the n values of do.

If f is NULL, bootstrap() and jackknife() return a data.frame

with the following elements (else, returns the result of f applied to the n values of do) :

original

The observed value of do applied to object.

mean

The bootstrap/jackknife estimate of mean of do.

bias

The bootstrap/jackknife estimate of bias of do.

error

The boostrap/jackknife estimate of standard error of do.

## Estimate the 25th, 50th and 95th percentiles
quant <- function(x) { quantile(x, probs = c(0.25, 0.50, 0.75)) }
resample(x, n = 100, do = median, f = quant)
#>  25%  50%  75%
#> 45.5 47.0 48.5
