Duoduoduo (talk) 14:40, 14 February 2011 (UTC), The above discussion suggests that there may be a good reason to expand the scope of ths article to become "Interval estimation for binomial proportions" and to allow an equal footing in the article for credible intervals, with distinctions being made where appropriate. I don't have the mathematical capacity to determine which is correct, but for my data the former calculation makes a lot more sense than the latter, so I suspect that wikipedia's entry is wrong. This error is to conflate the distribution of the likely position of an observation p about a population true value P (which is binomial) with the likely position of P about an observation p (which is not). In either case, however, both the exact and non-Wald approximations are generally generally better CI estimates for small n. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 134.174.140.216 (talk) 21:01, 11 June 2010 (UTC), The entry is technical, not too technical, in my opinion. Interval estimator) for unknown parameters of probability laws from results of observations.It was proposed and developed by J. Neyman (see , ).The essence of the method consists in the following. Instead of the "Wilson score interval" the "Wald interval" can also be used provided the above weight factors are included. In statistics, censoring is a condition in which the value of a measurement or observation is only partially known.. For example, suppose a study is conducted to measure the impact of a drug on mortality rate.In such a study, it may be known that an individual's age at death is at least 75 years (but may be more). One could leave out detail to make things more succinct, but that might make it more difficult to follow. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tjrm (talk • contribs) 21:36, 9 January 2011 (UTC), I have made two amendments which I view as essential on this topic. The observed binomial proportion is the fraction of the flips which turn out to be heads. (z squared)/(4n squared), Binomial Proportion Confidence Intervals These are Confidence Intervals for estimating a proportion in the population When we sample, we calculate a Point Estimate of the proportion We know that due to variance in the Sampling Distribution each time we get different estimates From this, the mean and variance of a Bernoulli random variable But that might just get too confusing. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page or join the discussion. The confidence interval for the mean of a Poisson distribution can be expressed using the relationship between the cumulative distribution functions of the Poisson and chi-squared distributions. There are a number of ways to compute a confidence interval for a proportion (see Wikipedia). From: Wiki "The Pearson-Clopper confidence interval is a very common method for calculating binomial confidence intervals. This is called 95% confidence interval for $p$: We say that we're 95% confident that the true value of $p$ is somewhere in this interval. I'll add an extra paragraph in the introduction that explains why there is more than one formula. For the binomial case, several techniques for constructing intervals have been created. For the binomial case, several techniques for constructing intervals have been created. Perhaps adding a subsection to the Wilson Interval about how it can be applied to decision trees would be useful. I don't understand the comment that the Clopper-Pearson intervals are conservative due to the discreteness of the Binomial distribution; they are based on the beta distribution which IS continuous and well behaved in the interval. The normal approximation section replicates a common error in explanations of the binomial proportion interval, one which inevitably leaves the reader totally confused.

Why we chose 95% CI with $\alpha = 0.05$ and not another one? estimate $p$ as $\hat{p} = \cfrac{\text{success}}{n}$, and the CI is $\left[\hat{p} - 1.96 \sqrt{p(1-p)/n}; \hat{p} + 1.96 \sqrt{p(1-p)/n}\right]$, We have a sample of $n$ observations: $X_1, ..., X_{n}$, let $\hat{p} = $ fraction of successful $X_i$, i.e.
