Given a random sample of size n from a normal input population with parameters μ and σ , the random variable (n-1)s 2 / σ 2 follows a Chi-Square ( Χ 2 ) distribution with n-1 degrees of freedom.

The Χ α , ν 2 chi-square critical value corresponds to the value of the variable such that α x100% of the area under the curve lies to the right when there are ν =n-1 degrees of freedom. The chi-square distribution is tabulated in the appendix on page 673.

Since, in effect Χ 2 =(n-1)s 2 / σ 2 , we can solve for σ 2 in this definition and obtain the 100(1- α )% confidence interval for the variance of a normal population with the lower and upper limits: [ (n-1)s 2 / Χ 2 α /2,n-1 , (n-1)s 2 / Χ 2 1- α /2,n-1 ] A confidence interval for the standard deviation has lower and upper limits that are the square roots of the corresponding limits on the variance.
