In this study, we adapt sufficient bootstrap into the jackknife-after-bootstrap (JaB) algorithm. The performances of the sufficient and conventional JaB methods have been compared for detecting influential observations in linear regression. Comparison is based on two real-world examples and an extensive designed simulation study. Design includes different sample sizes and various modeling scenarios. The results reveal that proposed method is a good competitor for conventional JaB method with less standard error and amount of computation.
