Abstract

For interval estimation of a proportion the Score Interval is quite accurate. It has good reviews in the Statistics literature. But the problem is that it is not used enough. A reason is that many consider it is complicated. In this paper, we suggest a program and other things that we hope will make the Score Interval more suitable to use in the field of statistics.
