Re: st: Comparing non-parametric bootstrap vs. Monte Carlo
Neil is correct. I should have mentioned the references.
So here are some of them: Leslie Kish, in Survey Sampling, covers the finite population
correction on pp. 43ff. Sharon Lohr, in Sampling: Design and Analysis, addresses
this matter on pp 33,45. She also refers to this matter in pp. 196-199. W. E. Deming
in Some Theory on Sampling takes it up on pp. 103-104. Efron and Tibshirani, 1986, sec 9
take up the number of iterations needed.
