Where, maximum permissible error (d) is 0/1, confidence coefficient is 0/95, t= 1/96, p and q are 0/5 and population volume is N.
In the definition of confidence limit (LL = mean - C*SE), C is not 'confidence coefficient' but is the critical value obtained from the Statistical Table corresponding to the prescribed confidence coefficient.
Such limits are supposed to provide a data-dependent interval containing the unknown p with a given probability called confidence coefficient (see Hahn and Meeker, 1991).
