Title

A Comparison of the Statistical Properties of Confidence Intervals for the Difference in Two Proportions

Abstract Summary

For this study, we reviewed the literature for existing simulations, and in some cases conducted further simulations, comparing the methods of Agresti and Min (2001), Chan and Zhang (1999), Santner and Snell (1980), as well as a the classic asymptotic methods and a few more recent approaches (both exact and not exact). Additionally, we looked at which methods are easily obtainable using popular software, and assessed the computer run-times for the implemented methods for various scenarios.
