# FisherZ.Var: Calculate the variance of an estimator after Fisher's Z... In DiagTest3Grp: Diagnostic test summary measures for three ordinal groups

## 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.
