    Calculating range




    Dear all

    This is my first question in this forum.
    I have 100 over medical data points which was measured in different patients practically. These data points are influenced by several factors. But from these data set, I don'know the factors. Further, there is a defined fixed standard value (cut off) available for the measured data. I would like to find out the range wherein the influnced factors falls in this range by using the fixed cutoff value as a standard
    It would be greatly appreciated if you provide an idea to approch this problem.

    Thank you

    Govind

    It appears that you could address your problem using the Bootstrap. For example, if I'm using S+, then the code would be: range(data). As such. using, say, 10,000 replications, I could generate 95% confidence intervals on the lower and upper limits of the range.
