If, for example, .95 probability is used, we call the result a 95% confidence interval . Inference Review 4 Symmetric intervals h Many intervals have a symmetric form and can be stated: point estimate ± ME h Here point estimate is our “best guess” of the population parameter’s value and ME is the estimator’s margin of error.
