The following equation is used to calculate the point estimate using the Wilson Estimation.

## Point Estimate Definition

A point estimate is a term used to describe the estimate of a parameter applied to a specific population. In other words, it’s a single value that is used to estimate the specific population parameter.

## Example

The following is an example of calculating the point estimate.

- First, determine the total number of successes or total number of positives to the specific parameter. We will say this is 10 for this example.
- Next, determine the total number of trials, or total sample size. For this example we will say this is 100.
- Next, determine the confidence interval of the set of data. We will say this is a 97% confidence.
- Finally, calculate the point estimate using the formula. We find the point estimate to be .1 .
