Determination of Coverage Interval of Antioxidant Vitamins (Vitamin C & Vitamin E) in Plasma and Serum of Bengali Population

Table 2

Distribution of reference values of vitamin C.

Number of observations ( )71
Distribution of reference values (mg/dL)
 Mean0.65
 Median0.6
 95% CI (confidence interval)0.65 0.05
Test for normal distribution
 Kolmogorov Smirnova test. 0.006#
 Non parametric Coverage interval0.35–1.2 mg/dL
 Kolmogorov Smirnov test after
 logarithmic transformation.
0.2*
 Parametric coverage interval0.32–1.17 mg/dL

The distribution is not in normal distribution as .
This is a lower bound true significance .
Refers to in statistics, the Lilliefors test.
