ci.sigma {asbio}R Documentation

Confidence interval for sigma squared.

Description

The function calculates confidence intervals for σ^2. We assume that the parent population is normal.

Usage

ci.sigma(data, conf = 0.95, S.sq = NULL, n = NULL, summarized = FALSE)

Arguments

data

A vector of quantitative data. Required if summarized=FALSE.

conf

Level of confidence. 1 - P(type I error).

S.sq

Sample variance, required if summarized=TRUE.

n

Sample size, required if summarized=TRUE.

summarized

Logical. If summarized=TRUE then the user must supply S.sq and n

Value

Returns a list of class = "ci". Default printed results are the point estimate and confidence bounds. Other objects are invisible.
