bonftolint: Approximate 2-Sided Tolerance Intervals that Control the...

Description Usage Arguments Value Note References Examples

Description

This function allows the user to control what proportion of the population is to be in the tails of the given distribution for a 2-sided tolerance interval. The result is a conservative approximation based on Bonferroni's inequality.

Usage

1
bonftol.int(fn, P1 = 0.005, P2 = 0.005, alpha = 0.05, ...)

Arguments

fn

The function name for the 2-sided tolerance interval to be calculated.

P1

The proportion of the population not covered in the lower tail of the distribution.

P2

The proportion of the population not covered in the upper tail of the distribution.

alpha

The level chosen such that 1-alpha is the confidence level.

...

Additional arguments passed to fn, including the data. All arguments that would be specified in fn must also be specified here.

Value

The results for the 2-sided tolerance interval procedure are reported. See the corresponding help file for fn about specific output. Note that the (minimum) proportion of the population to be covered by this interval is 1 - (P1 + P2).

Note

This function can be used with any 2-sided tolerance interval function, including the regression tolerance interval functions.
