Percentile

Confidence interval for mean or median

Calculates confidence interval for the mean or median of a distribution with unknown population variance

Usage
conf.interval(x, cl = 0.95, stat = "mean", std.error = TRUE)
Arguments
x

Vector to calculate confidence interval for

cl

Percent confidence level (default = 0.95)

stat

Statistic (mean or median)

std.error

Return standard error (TRUE/FALSE)

Value

lci Lower confidence interval value

uci Upper confidence interval value

mean If stat = "mean", mean value of distribution

mean Value of the mean or median

conf.level Confidence level used for confidence interval

std.error If std.error = TRUE standard error of distribution

 	       lty = c(2,1), lwd = c(1,2.5))
