Title: The Simulation-Based, Standardized Z-Statistic: When and Why it Works
Author(s): Yew-Meng Koh*
Companies: Hope College
Keywords: standardized ; proportion ; simulation ; convergence

Simulation techniques provide intuitive paths for statistical inference. A quick and easy measure of the strength of evidence against the null hypothesis of a claimed value for a population proportion would be the simulation-based, standardized z-statistic. A brief introduction to this statistic, the intuition behind its definition, and a proof for when and why this z-statistic converges in distribution to the standard normal will be given.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
