"On the length of confidence intervals with conditional coverage"
Friday, December 2, 2022
10:00-11:00 AM
We show that two popular selective inference procedures, namely data carving and selection with a randomized response, when combined with the polyhedral method, result in confidence intervals whose length is bounded. This contrasts results for confidence intervals based on the polyhedral method alone, whose expected length is typically infinite. Moreover, we show that these two procedures always dominate corresponding sample-splitting methods in terms of interval length.
