# Confidence intervals for single, paired and independent proportions

### Description

Computes confidence intervals for single proportions as well as for differences in dependent and independent proportions, the odds-ratio and the relative risk in a 2x2 table. Intervals are available for independent samples and matched pairs. The functions are partly written by assistants of Alan Agresti, see website http://www.stat.ufl.edu/~aa/cda/cda.html.
