8/16/2007

The confidence intervals for death rates statistics for all races (combined) were based on the Fay/Feuer method. The confidence intervals were updated to use the Tiwari method to be consistent with rest of the web site (including the race subgroups).

In general, the change was made to use the Tiwari method because the modifications of the gamma (rates) and F intervals (rate ratios) in the Tiwari method are more efficient in the sense that they have empirical coverage probabilities less than or equal to their counterparts and also retain the nominal level.
