Calculate Percentage for 95 % CI

Hello There,

I have calculated using Proc Means procedure.

Now I wanted to Calculate Percentage for this CIs.

How would I compute percentage (%)  for 95% CIs  I am cluless seeing first time.

TRT A         TRT B

95% CI  (x.xx, x.xx)   (x.xx, x.xx)
CI[%]        XX.X             XX.X

I see it is giving just CIs. I would want calculate % Percentage for those CIs.

I'm afraid I don't understand the meaning of "% Percentage" in the context of confidence intervals. This is not a statistical phrase that I have ever seen.

Re: Calculate Percentage for 95 % CI

I don't understand your question. Could you provide an example? For example, what sort of output would you want for the following example?

``````
data Have;
call streaminit(1);
do i = 1 to 20;
Trt = "A";    x = rand("uniform");
output;
end;
do i = 1 to 15;
Trt = "B";    x = 0.5 + rand("uniform");
output;
end;
drop i;
run;

proc means data=Have mean LCLM UCLM;
class Trt;
var x;
run;

Re: Calculate Percentage for 95 % CI

Maybe we are having a communication issue. You say "I would want calculate % Percentage for those CIs," but we don't know what that means.

A confidence interval is an interval estimate for a parameter. In 95% of random samples, the 95% CI will contain the true parameter for a population that satisfies the assumptions of the method.

Are you asking "how many data values are inside the 95% CI"?  Statistically speaking, that is a question that doesn't provide any insight into the inference. It is an irrelevant question.

In my question there is a mock i given. i want second row to be calculated. First row CIs comes from lcm option in Mean Lower and Upper CIs.

My previous post includes simulated data that has 35 observations. Please use that data to show what percentages you want to get for the second row.
