Answer Challenging Questions with Parametric Resampling

The Simulate platform is available only in JMP Pro.

The Simulate feature provides powerful parametric and nonparametric simulation capability. Use Simulate to do the following:

Expand on the bootstrap to provide parametric bootstrapping.

Obtain power calculations in nonstandard situations.

Approximate the distribution of statistics, such as predicted values, and confidence intervals, in nonstandard situations.

Conduct permutation tests.

Explore the effect of assumptions about predictors on models.

Explore various “what if” scenarios relative to your models.

Evaluate new or existing statistical methods.

The Simulate option is available in many reports, including all of those that support Bootstrap. To access the Simulate option, right-click in a report.
