Object containing confidence interval results


The ConfidenceInterval object is a superclass of two confidence interval objects: PredictionConfidenceInterval and ParameterConfidenceInterval. These objects contain confidence interval results computed with sbiopredictionci and sbioparameterci, respectively.

This property is read-only.

Confidence interval type, specified as 'gaussian', 'profileLikelihood' (for ParameterConfidenceInterval only), or 'bootstrap'

Example: 'bootstrap'

This property is read-only.

Original group names from the data used for fitting the model, specified as a cell array of character vectors. Each cell contains the name of a group.

Example: {'1'}{'2'}{'3'}

This property is read-only.

Confidence level, (1-Alpha) * 100%, specified as a positive scalar between 0 and 1.

Example: 0.01

This property is read-only.

Confidence interval data, specified as a table.

This property is read-only.

Exit flags returned during the calculation of bootstrap confidence intervals only, specified as a vector of integers. Each integer is an exit flag returned by the estimation function (except nlinfit) used to fit parameters during bootstrapping. The same estimation function used in the original fit is used for bootstrapping.

Each flag indicates the success or failure status of the fitting performed to create a bootstrap sample. Refer to the reference page of the corresponding estimation function for the meaning of the exit flag.

If the estimation function does not return an exit flag, ExitFlags is set to []. For the gaussian and profileLikelihood confidence intervals, ExitFlags is not supported and is always set to [].
