I've calculated the proportion of chicks fledged out of the number of eggs hatched in each year using
prop.test() in R. I see that it gives me the proportion fledged, but also the 95% confidence interval, which is what I'm after.
Having read the excellent information from another question on this site here, I understand why I don't have symmetry in my 95% CIs!
- However, how should I report this in a paper?
I've seen people report values as 38% (±0.2%), with an indication that the value in brackets is 95% CI. Obviously this won't work for asymmetrical CIs. Must I report the upper and lower values in these cases?
