Subject: Confidence Levels
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 more specific link to one of the pages outlining the use of confidence levels. There are even some example Excel spreadsheet formulas that you can use.
