Title: RVLS Confidence Interval on a Proportion
Url: http://www.ruf.rice.edu/~lane/stat_sim/normal_approx_conf/index.html
Creator: Lane, David M.
Publisher: Rice University
 Description: This applet allows you to explore the validity of confidence intervals on a proportion with various values for sample size (N) and population proportion (Pi). After you specify N, Pi, the level of confidence, and the number of simulations you wish to perform, the applet samples data according to your specification and computes a confidence interval for each simulation. The proportion of simulations for which the confidence interval contains Pi is recorded. If the method for constructing confidence intervals is valid, then about 95% of the 95% confidence intervals should contain Pi.
