R package bootComb: Combine Parameter Estimates via Parametric Bootstrap. Propagate uncertainty from several estimates when combining these estimates via a function. This is done by using the parametric bootstrap to simulate values from the distribution of each estimate to build up an empirical distribution of the combined parameter. Finally either the percentile method is used or the highest density interval is chosen to derive a confidence interval for the combined parameter with the desired coverage. Gaussian copulas are used for when parameters are assumed to be dependent / correlated.
