asymptotic standard error

    How is the confidence interval for variance component in "lmer" function computed ?

    Here is the R code : library(lme4) fm1 <- lmer(Reaction ~ Days + (Days | Subject), sleepstudy) confint.merMod(fm1,oldNames=FALSE) And the output is 2.5 % 97.5 % sd_(Intercept)|Subject 14.3814761 37.715996...

    Should the standard error (SE) of the best-fit coefficients be propagated?

    Hi all, This is how I understand it. Please correct me if I’m wrong: When fitting models to experimental data the statistical software produces a set of best-fit coefficients and automatically calculates their respective ‘asymptotic’ standard error (SE). The SE for each coefficient describes...
