My report is on 10 different salaries of Registered Nurses.

The goal of this project is to show a building confidence interval, to learn the bootstrapping method, the different percentiles, and to understand histogram of the data.

This data was collected from http://scrubsmag.com/top-ten-highest-paying-nursing-specialties/. The salary is made in thosands.<data1>

The histogram is bell shaped which means it is normal. <result1>

Below is the raw data of the mean and standard deviation. <result2>

Below is the bootstrap sample. When comparing the raw data with the bootstrap data the mean and standard deviation are similar. <result3>

Below the data shows the 2.5 percentile and 97.5 percentile.<result4>

The 2.5 percentile and 97.5 percentile are similar to the upper and lower bound. They are very close. <result5>

The following simulation shows 1,000 repetitions of the bootstrap.<result6>
