ZTestw_conf - script and chart function

ZTestw_conf() returns the aggregated z confidence interval value for a series of values.

This function applies to z-tests where the input data series is given in weighted two-column format.

If the function is used in the data load script, the values are iterated over a number of records as defined by a group by clause.

If the function is used in a chart expression, the values are iterated over the chart dimensions.


ZTest_conf(weight, value[, sigma[, sig]])

Return data type: numeric


valueThe sample values to be evaluated. A population mean of 0 is assumed. If you want the test to be performed around another mean, subtract that mean from the sample values.
weightEach sample value in value can be counted one or more times according to a corresponding weight value in weight.
sigmaIf known, the standard deviation can be stated in sigma. If sigma is omitted the actual sample standard deviation will be used.
sigThe two-tailed level of significance can be specified in sig. If omitted, sig is set to 0.025, resulting in a 95% confidence interval.


Text values, NULL values and missing values in the expression value will result in the function returning NULL.
