    patient-days or as little as 5.88 per 10,000 patient-days. The confidence intervals for the All-states estimate and for the ACT do not overlap, which indicates that there is a difference between the two rates. To check this, I also calculated a rate ratio: The rate ratio for these two incidence rates (blue) indicates that ACT had a 1.83-fold, or 83%, higher rate than for all other states combined. We are 95% confident that the true population rate ratio could be as much as a 2.08-fold…

    In fact, Anderson et al. (2015), stated that “the value .95 is referred to as the confidence coefficient, and the interval 78.08 to 85.92 is called the 95% confidence interval” (p. 340). This should express that a normal distribution will always follow this rule. Therefore, if one wanted to ensure that home sales were still tracking to normal distribution, a quick calculation would ensure it.

  • VAR Model Analysis: Analysis Of Granger Causity

    As Granger Causality does not show us a complete picture of interactions, it is of a great interest to know how an impulse in one variable could influence another variable in the system which contains several other variables as well. Figure 1 shows changes of endogenous variable GDP growth expected by a shock in oil price of 1%. The upper and lower lines show two standard errors bounds based on confidence interval of 95%. On the basis of impulse response functions it could be concluded that…
