Computes a confidence interval for a mean at a desired level of significance.

## Usage

```
confidence_mean(object, ...)
# S4 method for numeric
confidence_mean(object, level = 0.95, type = c("student", "normal"))
```

## Arguments

- object
A

`numeric`

vector.- ...
Currently not used.

- level
A length-one

`numeric`

vector giving the confidence level. Must be a single number between \(0\) and \(1\).- type
A

`character`

string giving the type of confidence interval to be returned. It must be one "`student`

" (the default) or "`normal`

". Any unambiguous substring can be given.

## Value

A length-two `numeric`

vector giving the lower and upper confidence
limits.

## Examples

```
## Confidence interval for a mean
x <- seq(from = -4, to = 4, by = 0.01)
y <- dnorm(x)
confidence_mean(y, type = "student")
#> lower upper
#> 0.1151118 0.1345606
confidence_mean(y, type = "normal")
#> lower upper
#> 0.1151265 0.1345459
## Confidence interval for a propotion
confidence_binomial(118, n = 236)
#> lower upper
#> 0.4362086 0.5637914
x <- c(35, 74, 22, 69)
confidence_multinomial(x)
#> lower upper
#> [1,] 0.12234021 0.2276598
#> [2,] 0.30308797 0.4369120
#> [3,] 0.06663649 0.1533635
