Description

The data, taken from \insertCitec17superb, is an example where the "stand-alone" 95\% confidence interval of the means returns a result in contradiction with the result of a statistical test. The paradoxical result is resolved by using adjusted confidence intervals, here the different-adjusted confidence interval.

Usage
