Computes confidence intervals for the rate (or risk) difference ('RD') or rate ratio (or relative risk, 'RR') for binomial proportions or Poisson rates, or for odds ratio ('OR', binomial only). Also confidence intervals for a single binomial or Poisson rate, and intervals for matched pairs. Includes skewnesscorrected asymptotic score ('SCAS') methods, which have been developed in Laud (2017) <doi:10.1002/pst.1813> from Miettinen & Nurminen (1985) <doi:10.1002/sim.4780040211> and Gart & Nam (1988) <doi:10.2307/2531848>. Also includes MOVER methods (Method Of Variance Estimates Recovery) for all contrasts, derived from the Newcombe method but using equaltailed Jeffreys intervals, and generalised for Bayesian applications incorporating prior information. Socalled 'exact' methods for strictly conservative coverage are approximated using continuity corrections. Also includes methods for stratified calculations (e.g. metaanalysis), either assuming fixed effects or incorporating stratum heterogeneity.
