To calculate the 95% confidence interval of the mean of a normal distribution you calculate 1.96 χ standard error on the mean.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what do you do if you want to calculate the 95% confidence interval on the median of the distribution, for a distribution that is most definitely skewed and not gaussian?

Thanks
