computeTraditionalCi computes the traditional confidence interval based on the log of the
relative risk and the standard error of the log of the relative risk.
computeTraditionalCi(logRr, seLogRr, ciWidth = 0.95)
A numeric vector of one or more effect estimates on the log scale
The standard error of the log of the effect estimates. Hint: often the standard error = (log(<lower bound 95 percent confidence interval>) - log(<effect estimate>))/qnorm(0.025)
The width of the confidence interval. Typically this would be .95, for the 95 percent confidence interval.
The point estimate and confidence interval
