ASQ/ANSI/ISO 16269-7:2001: Statistical interpretation of data - Part 7: Median - Estimation and confidence intervals
- median - estimation and confidence intervals
This part of ASQ/ANSI/ISO 16269 specifies the procedures for establishing a point estimate and confidence intervals for the median of any continuous probability distribution of a population, based on a random sample size from the population. These procedures are distribution-free, i.e. they do not require knowledge of the family of distributions to which the population distribution belongs. Similar procedures can be applied to estimate quartiles and percentiles.
