Subject: Confidence Levels
Message:
Could somebody explain confidence levels for me. What does it mean when it states a 90% or 60% confidence level and how do determine the confidence level to use? How do the results change for these confidence levels? Thanks for any help given.

Here is a very good site to introduce statistics. Section 8 "Reliability" may help you understand what you are looking for. There are even a few examples. The Engineering Statistics Handbook http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/ Richard.
