The bootstrap method (Efron, 1979) is one of the most important innovations in statistics in the 20th century. This talk introduces the bootstrap method and discusses when it should be used. This example-driven presentation includes best practices for implementing bootstrap programs efficiently in SAS. An inefficient bootstrap program can take hours to run, whereas a well-written program can give you an answer in an instant. If you want to learn more about the bootstrap method and prefer "instants" to "hours," this talk is for you!
