"This does not produce the same 95% CI as the equation from the double regression (recommended in the paper mentioned above)" b0 + b1A ą 1.96 * residual SD from the regression." I assume you mean: b0 + b1A +/ 1.96 * residual SD This is not the equation for a confidence interval. The variability of a predicted mean depends on the distance of the predictor variable (A) from the sample mean. . See the correct equation in the section on linear regression of any introductory text. Secondarily, -twoway lfitci- will use a t-multiplier not a z- (Gaussian) multiplier Steve > Pinto, Daniel > > I am analyzing the results of a method comparison study assessing agreement between two methods of capturing health service use and costs, N=50. Due to the small sample size and the analysis of cost data my distribution is non-Normal. I believe that Bland-Altman plot is the best statistic to use except that it assumes a Normal distribution. To address non-Normality Bland and Altman recommend using a double-regression half-Normal distribution method in the following paper: Bland JM, Altman DG.
