Paul,

The book from Agresti (2002), Categorical Data Analysis, discuss confidence intervals built from tests like Wald, score and likelihood ratio, and the Clopper-Pearson, Wilson and Agresti-Coull.intervals too. I think any library from a statistical faculty have this book and it is a great reference about the subject.

Dear all,

As I don't have access to a decent Stats library here, I tried to obtain
the recommended paper (Brown, Cai, & DasGupta.
Interval Estimation for a Binomial Proportion. Statistical Science, 2001,
16, pp. 101-133.) over the internet; but it is currently behind a "rolling
firewall", until 2005.

Would anyone who has seen it hazard a comment on which of the
new methods - Wilson, Jeffreys or Agresti they would prefer for
small samples.

Many thanks
