New Interval Estimators For The Ratio Of Quantiles From Two Independent Populations
This project will introduce new confidence interval estimators for ratios of independent quantiles. Performance of the new intervals will be compared to the method of Bonnet and Price (2002) for ratios of medians and then be extended to consider the ratio of other quantiles.
