Distribution of reference values (mg/L)
 Mean6.35
 Median5.99
 95% CI (confidence interval)
Test for normal distribution
 Kolmogorov Smirnova test. 0.037#
 Non parametric Coverage interval3.3–13.3 mg/L
 Kolmogorov Smirnov test after
 logarithmic transformation.
0.200*
 Parametric coverage interval3–11.9 mg/L

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