Forty-two percent cited a "lack of capital" as their biggest obstacle to growth, up from about 35% the previous year, according to Mainsail Partners, a San Francisco, private-equity firm that works primarily with bootstrapped
Given that the basic bootstrap techniques were originally developed for independent observations, the bootstrap inference has not the desired properties when applied to raw returns; Bookstaber and McDonald (1987), Chatterjee and Pari (1990), Hsie and Miller (1990) and Levich and Thomas (1993) present the problems of surveys where returns are directly bootstrapped
resources have been widely available (Van Auken and Neeley, 1996), and have been illustrated by practices such as prompt invoicing, borrowing equipment, and winning grants, respectively (Winborg and Landstrom, 2001).
The percentile interval cuts the distribution of the bootstrapped
estimates at the 2.
Table 5 presents the characteristics of the parametric and bootstrapped
sampling distribution of the OLS and the MLE coefficient estimates ([?
Genetic distances among species were computed by the Kimura 2-parameters method by using MEGA, and were used to construct bootstrapped
neighbor-joining trees (8).
