When you have two samples from different populations, as in the case of an independent
samples t
test, you’re interested in the difference between the two means, so you want a confidence interval for µA – µB. The reasoning for this confidence interval is the same as for a single sample: Any potential value of µA – µB would be rejected if it’s more than tcrit⋅SE away from your point estimate, MA – MB. [ Independent samples: CI = ( M A " M B ) " tcrit # SE , ( M A " M B ) + tcrit # SE (9) It’s important to keep in mind what SE is in the confidence interval formulas. In both cases,...
