I would like to know how one could change the confidence Interval (CI)
to reflect 90% instead of 95% which I assume is the default. I am working in Epidata Analysis V2.0 (build 108).
The command "set table CI HEADER="(90% CI)" only changes the text in the tables, not the calculation. Until now the statistics have NOT been adapted to other confidence intervals than 95%. For a given table it should be quite easy though given you have the raw numbers. Enter these into e.g. www.openepi.com and get the desired 90% CI.
For analysis the possibility of users defining CI (e.g. 90 95 99) could be implemented within the next few years.
Just now for the v2 of EpiData Analysis we are working on some "subtle" internal issues, which is why seemingly very little progress was made recently. The implementation of the Upper Case fields <AAAAA> revealed need for quite many changes, since all internal parts were made only for uppercase handling. The problems mentioned in the Mantis database and on the www.epidata.dk/testing.php page that the latest test build does not save data properly has been solved.
