However, inferences about a linear combination of K independent proportions L = Σβ(i)p(i) (in which the first two are special cases) have had very little attention paid to them (focused exclusively on the classic Wald method). In this article the authors approach the problem from the more efficient viewpoint of the score method… CONTINUE READING
