Abstract

When a study produces estimates for many units or categories a common problem is that end-users will wish to make their own comparisons among a subset of these units. This problem will occur, for example, when estimates of school performance are produced for all schools. The paper proposes a procedure, based on the graphical presentation of confidence intervals, which enables such comparisons to be carried out while maintaining an average required type I error rate.
