VarianceRatioCI

VarianceRatioCI[list1,list2]

gives a confidence interval for the ratio of the population variances estimated from list1 and from list2.

Details

  • To use VarianceRatioCI, you first need to load the Hypothesis Testing Package using Needs["HypothesisTesting`"].
  • VarianceRatioCI[list1,list2] gives a confidence interval {min,max} for a ratio of the population variances estimated by Variance[list1] and Variance[list2].
  • For confidence level α, min=ratio/q(1+α)/2 and max=ratio/q(1-α)/2 where ratio=Variance[list1]/Variance[list2] and qi is the i^(th) quantile of an F-ratio distribution with Length[list1]-1 numerator and Length[list2]-1 denominator degrees of freedom.
  • The following option can be given:
  • ConfidenceLevel0.95probability associated with a confidence interval
