## Confidence intervals for percent agreement

Minitab calculates the confidence intervals for the percent agreement.

### Formulas

95% Lower Bound
Minitab calculates the lower bound of the percent agreement confidence interval when α = 0.05 by:
v1 = 2m
v2 = 2 (N – m + 1)
If percent = 0 (no agreement), the lower bound = 0. If percent = 1 (perfect agreement), use α instead of α/ 2 in the formula.
95% Upper Bound
Minitab calculates the upper bound of the percent agreement confidence interval when α = 0.05 by:
v1 = 2 (m + 1)
v2 = 2 (N – m)
If percent = 0 (no agreement), use a instead of α/ 2 in the formula. If percent = 1 (perfect agreement), the upper bound = 1.
