However, the apparent difference (-20%) in release rate between our study and Scheelings' (4) did not reach statistical significance when performing confidence limit analysis of the difference in proportions for these 2 separate studies (95% CL: -24%, 8%; P > .05) The release rate of conservatively managed birds in this study was comparable to those reported for birds treated surgically by Holz, (6) who also had a 75% release rate (n = 6/8; 95% CL: 41%, 93%), although this was a notably smaller sample size (Figs 1 and 2).
Those cases with the actual value of charges less than the lower confidence limits had a value of $1,911,589,989 and included 30,830 cases, approximately 1.3% of the total.
The false alarm reducing method defines another confidence limit to further reduce the false alarms of [T.sup.2] and Q statistics.
As exposure time increases, the LC values decrease and the confidence limits become narrower.
The degree of relationship between residuals in ACF and PACF graphs were found within confidence limits (Figure 14).
Caption: Flood Frequency Curve: The figure shows an example of a flood frequency curve with confidence limits. The red line curve represents the best fit of a single line to the datapoints showing annual peak flow (the highest daily flow of any year) recorded at a streamgage through its operational history.
