Bootstraping and alpha significance

Post by ghozali »

Hi,
Every time I run bootstraping I always get different result of t-statistic value. To decide whether this t-statistic significance or not if i used 10% significance level it will be problem because it is unstable, but if I use 5% or 1% it will get consistent result. Which significance level sholud I use?

How could you explain to us why every time running bootstraping I get diferent result of t-statistics?

Thanks

isn't bootstrapping: picking samples randomly? so your results vary depending on your significance level.

but hey i can be wrong - i am just a novice
