Description

Calculates the variance estimate of a sample estimate for a normal mean parameter.

Usage

1
var.mu(s, n)

Arguments

s

A numeric value, the sample estimate for normal standard deviation.

n

A numeric value, the sample size of data.

Details

For a sample dataset of size n drawn from a normal distributin N(μ,σ^2, denote the sample estimate on the mean parameter and standard deviation parameter as u and s, Then the variance of the sample mean is Var(u)=s^2/n.

Value

A numeric value, the variance of a sample estimate for a normal mean parameter.
