Confidence Interval for a Mean

Description

Computes a confidence interval for a mean at a desired level of significance.

Usage

confidence_mean(object, ...)

## S4 method for signature 'numeric'
confidence_mean(object, level = 0.95, type = c("student", "normal"))

Arguments

object

A numeric vector.

...

level

A length-one numeric vector giving the confidence level. Must be a single number between 0 and 1.

type

A character string giving the type of confidence interval to be returned. It must be one "student" (the default) or "normal". Any unambiguous substring can be given.
