Data1
Estimate is a point estimate from ^{[1]}.
Data 2
Probability distribution of body weight of adults aged 18-55yr and over 55yr were extracted from ^{[2]}. For a given age group body weight data was summarized in terms of mean and the 95% confidence interval:
- 18-55yr: 77.6 (77.0-78.1),
- 55yr+: 76.5 (75.9-77.2).
Based on that a normal distribution was created. Since standard deviations (SDs) calculated from 2.5^{th} and 97.5^{th} percentiles were not exactly equal the larger SD was used as a standard deviation of a normal distribution.
Note: There was not measurements for ages 18-29yr, only for 30-55yr.
