The Influence of Extreme Value in Binomial Confidence Interval Ryu, Jea-Bok;
Several methods are used in interval estimation for binomial proportion; however the coverage probabilities of most confidence intervals depart from the confidence level when the binomial population proportion closes to 0 or 1 due to the extreme value. Vollset (1993), Agresti and Coull (1998), Newcombe (1998), and Brown et al. (2001) suggested methods to adjust the extreme value. This paper discusses the influence of extreme value in a binomial confidence interval through the numerical comparison of 6 confidence intervals.
