Lesson 31: Confidence Intervals for Two Means

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

In this lesson, we derive confidence intervals for the difference in two population means, μ1− μ2, under three circumstances:

  • when the populations are independent and normally distributed with a common variance σ2
  • when the populations are independent and normally distributed with unequal variances
  • when the populations are dependent and normally distributed
