Provide the lower and upper limit of a normal confidence interval given an estimate and its associated variance

Description

Provide the lower and upper limit of a 100*(1-alpha)% normal confidence interval (CI) given an estimate and its associated variance

Usage

1
  CI.normal(est, var0, alpha = 0.05)  

Arguments

est

A numeric value, a estimate on which the CI to be calculated.

var0

A numeric value, the variance of the estimate.

alpha

A numeric value, for a (1-alpha)*100% confidence interval. Default alpha=0.05, i.e., 95% confidence interval.

Details

The lower and upper limit of the confidence interval for an estimate \hat{theta}is calculated as \hat{θ} +/- Z_{\frac{α}{2}}*√(var0). Z_{\frac{α}{2}} is the normal α/2 quantile.

Value

Returns a list including,

est

The estimate provided by user.

var0

The variance of the estimate provided by user.

lower

the lower limit of a 100*(1-alpha)% normal confidence interval.

upper

the upper limit of a 100*(1-alpha)% normal confidence interval.
