Simulation for Wilson confidence intervals. Illustration of the meaning of (\(1-\alpha = 0.95\)) Wilson confidence intervals CI(π) for an unknown probability π, based on 100 samples. A single sample is based on \(n=20\) observations generated from a true \(Be(\pi )\) distribution with \(\pi =0.5\). The confidence intervals that do not cover the true probability \(\pi \) are coloured red (here, 7 out of 100)
