In the area of statistics, bootstrapping is a general modem approach to resampling methods. Bootstrapping is a way of estimating an estimator such as a variance when sampling from a certain distribution. The approximating distribution is based on the observed data. A set of observations is a population of independent and observed data identically distributed by resampling; the set is random with replacement equal in size to that of the observed data. The study starts with an introduction to bootstrap and its procedure and resampling. In this study, we look at the basic usage of bootstrap in statistics by employing R. The study discusses the bootstrap mean and median. Then there will follow a discussion of the comparison between normal and non-normal data in bootstrap. The study ends with a discussion and presents the advantages and disadvantages of bootstraps.
