## S3 method for class 'txshift'
confint(object, parm = seq_len(object$psi), level = 0.95, ...)

Arguments

object

An object of class txshift, as produced by invoking the function txshift, for which a confidence interval is to be computed.

parm

A numeric vector indicating indices of object$est for which to return confidence intervals.

level

A numeric indicating the level of the confidence interval to be computed.

...

Other arguments. Not currently used.

Details

Compute confidence intervals for estimates produced by txshift.

Value

A named numeric vector containing the parameter estimate from a txshift object, alongside lower and upper Wald-style confidence intervals at a specified coverage level.
