Bayesian Bootstrap Method and an Application to the Estimation of 85th Percentile in Traffic Engineering

Juan Carlos Correa



The 85 th quantile plays an important role in transportation engineering. In this paper we present different statistical procedures for its estimation, considering both, parametric and nonparametric procedures. With an example, we illustrate the difference between them.


Key words: 85th Quantile, Estimation, transporting engineering.
