Confidence Interval for the Coefficient of Variation (CV)

(Please note that this script is a new version that provides an optional By role as of 10Jul2014.)

This script opens a Distribution platform and adds the confidence interval for the coefficient of variation to the report. Simply open the data table with the columns to be analyzed and then open and run the script. Select the columns for analysis and click Y, Response. Select the grouping column and click By, Group if necessary. Specify the significance level and click OK:

The result is presented in a separate outline at the bottom of the platform:

(Please note that some sections are closed merely to keep this image small.)

The computation is based on this reference:

Vangel, Mark G. (1996) Confidence Intervals for a Normal Coefficient of Variation, The American Statistician 15(1) 21-26.
