Statistics for CVs: Bootstrap and other methods 
The CV is simply what you learn in a basic statistics class: the standard deviation divided by the mean. However, the statistical analysis with the CV in focus is usually not strongly covered in basic classes:
  • Coeffificients of Variations (CVs) are highly relevant
  • The challenge of non-(log)normal data, e.g. “zero/low-inflated” data
  • The statistical methods for CVs can be challenging
  • Standard methods exist for some distributions
  • Standard bootstrap methods might not be the best possible alternatives
Possible project elements:

  • Working with data from Novo Nordisk 
  • Reading about statistics for CVs
  • Implement methods in R
  • Compare methods on real data
  • Compare methods on simulated data (power and coverage probabilities)
  • Bootstrapping

In collaboration with

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
