Description

Calculate the variance of an estimator after Fisher's Z transformation

Usage

1
  FisherZ.Var(x, var.x)

Arguments

x

A numeric value, an estimator in the range of 0~1.

var.x

A numeric value, the variance of the estimator x.

Details

The variance of an estimator x after Fisher's Z transformation is \frac{var(x)}{(1-x^2)^2}{var(x)/(1-x^2)^2}.

Value

Return a numerical value—the variance of an estimator after Fisher's Z transformation.
