ARGOTE-CUSI, Milenka Linneth. Comparison and evaluation of the distribution of the estimator of the total fertility rate of Bolivia. Pap. poblac [online]. 2009, vol.15, n.62, pp. 201-222. ISSN 1405-7425.

The resampling method was applied to generate the statistical distribution of TFR of Bolivia in 1998 and 2003 so as to evaluate differences in the estimator at both times. Samples of ENDSAS for 1998 and 2003 of Bolivia, which have a stratified and two-stage design, were considered. The distributions turnout to be positive for the normality tests; nonetheless, they have their own characteristics of asymmetry and kurtosis. The method allows generating the empirical statistical distribution for the estimator, which is not feasible in the reality. It also allows evaluating the precision of the estimator as the replication algorithm can be modified and applied to other populations or other indicators.
