We formulate and prove a Jakobson-Benedicks-Carleson-type theorem on the occurrence of non-uniform hyperbolicity (stochastic dynamics) in families of one-dimensional maps, based on computable starting conditions and providing explicit, computable, lower bounds for the measure of the set of selected parameters. As a first application of our results we show that the set of parameters corresponding to maps in the quadratic family fa(x) ≤ x2 - a which have an absolutely continuous invariant probability measure is at least 10-5000.
