Transform the standard error of
x to standard error of
Standard error of
"delta" method uses a Taylor series approximation; the default method,
"mc", uses a simple monte carlo method.
Number of draws to take if
method = "mc".
Lower and upper bounds for the variable, used in the monte carlo method. Must be a length-two numeric vector with lower bound greater than or equal to zero (i.e.
c(lower, upper) as in default
bounds = c(0, Inf).
Numeric vector of standard errors
The delta method returns
x^(-1) * se. The monte carlo method is detailed in the examples section.
