Bootstrapping Other Statistics
We can generalize the previous operations to bootstrap other statistics. Here is a function that will bootstrap any statistic stat of any sample.
The sampling distribution of the mean and standard deviation have been well studied. The sampling distribution of the median, on the other hand, is less well known, but it is trivial to compute an estimate of it with the bootstrap.
