I chose to do my bootstrapping project on Hotels in Honolulu, Hawaii. I picked a random sample of 10 based on a family of 4. I used expedia.com to retrieve this information. Here is my raw data:
Here I took my raw data with a sample size 10 and resampled it 1000 times. I also have the mean for each sample with replacements.
Here you can see that I have an approximately normal distribution because of the shape on my historgram which is bellshaped.

Here you can see the standard deviation and the mean of my sample.
Summary statistics:

Here we can compare results of my raw data with my sample one and we can see that the means are slightly close to eachother as well as the standard error and standard deviation from my bootstrap sample column.
Summary statistics:

Here we can see the percentiles of my bootstrap sample.
Summary statistics:

On this chart we can see the 95% confidence interval for my raw data. The upper and lower bound are not exactly close to my bootstrapping sample.
95% confidence interval results:
μ : mean of Variable

Here I resampled the price column and the percentiles were near the upper and lower bounds of my previous chart with the confidence interval.
Statistic: mean(Price)

In these graphs you can see that my data is approximately normal based on the shape,center, and spread.


Here is my applet as you can see everytime you resample your percentiles change along with the standard deviation.
