Bootstrapping in R, Inferential statistics employs a technique called bootstrapping that builds random samples of single datasets repeatedly.

Calculating sampling metrics like mean, median, mode, confidence intervals, etc. is made possible by bootstrapping.

### Bootstrapping in R

The steps involved in bootstrapping using the R programming language are as follows:

- Decide how many bootstrap samples to use.
- Decide on each sample’s size.
- Choose a random observation from the dataset for each sample, and add it to the sample if the sample size is less than the sample that was selected.
- Calculate the sample’s statistic.
- Calculate each estimated sample value’s mean.

### Techniques for Self-Sufficiency

**Two approaches exist for bootstrapping:**

Model-based resampling is another name for the technique known as residual resampling. This approach assumes that the model is accurate and that mistakes are uniformly distributed and independent.

Variables are redefined and new variables are utilized to measure the new dependent variables following each resampling.

Bootstrap Pairs: In this technique, sampling is done using pairs of the dependent and independent variables.

**Example:**

# Load the library library(boot) # Creating a function to pass into boot() function bootFunc <- function(data, i){ df <- data[i, ] c(cor(df[, 2], df[, 3]), median(df[, 2]), mean(df[, 1]) ) } b <- boot(mtcars, bootFunc, R = 100) print(b) # Show all CI values boot.ci(b, index = 1)
