Description

Constructs Fieller's confidence interval.

Usage

1
fieller.ci(perturb.delta.s, perturb.delta, delta.s, delta)

Arguments

perturb.delta.s

numeric vector; the perturbed values for \hat{Δ}_S, the residual treatment effect estimate, used in variance estimation and confidence interval construction.

perturb.delta

numeric vector; the perturbed values for \hat{Δ}, the treatment effect estimate, used in variance estimation and confidence interval construction.

delta.s

the residual treatment effect, Δ_S, estimate, \hat{Δ}_S.

delta

the treatment effect, Δ, estimate, \hat{Δ}.

Details

See documention for R.s.estimate for more detail.

Value

Returns a vector of length 2, lower bound of the 95% confidence interval and upper bound of the 95% confidence interval.
