Selecting the Number of Repetitions in the Simulation
PCI2 generates a simulation based on a variable’s actual distribution of PCI2. This simulation produces a mean and standard deviation for the estimated PCI2. The standard deviations from the simulated PCI2 is critical in testing for a significant difference from a value (e.g., from 0 or 1) and for testing for significant differences between PCI2 values. The simulation is based on 400 repetitions, but this default can be changed to any number.
