Subject: how to combine two confidence intervals?
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
I have two samples, one for doctors and one for
hospitals. I have got the confidence intervals for the
estimators in doctors and hospitals.
For example, doctors total payment CI is
(120,000,000, 140,000,000) at alpha=.10 ;
hospitals total payment CI is
(150,000,000, 160,000,000) at alpha=0.10;
Then I want to get one interval for the total of
doctors and hospitals, how could I do that? Based on
the data, I used SRS for sampling the hospital, and I
used stratified sampling for doctors. I think direct
add up may not be correct, or the alpha need to be
Thank you for your help,
