1. Standar error of a mean provides a statement of probability about the difference between the mean of the population and the mean of the sample. ... This is called the 95% confidence interval

2. After you've calculated the mean of a set of observations, you should give some indication of how close your estimate is likely to be to the parametric ("true") mean.

One way to do this is with confidence limits. Confidence limits are the numbers at the upper and lower end of a confidence interval; for example, if your mean is 7.4 with confidence limits of 5.4 and 9.4, your confidence interval is 5.4 to 9.4. Most people use 95% confidence limits, although you could use other values
