A Package for Computation of Confidence Intervals for Variance Components of Mixed Models in R. varcompci computes these confidence intervals (Burdick and Graybill, 1992) for any balanced mixed effects saturated (main effect and interaction terms of all orders) analysis of variance (ANOVA) model (type III), involving five or fewer factors. The methods in this paper can also be applied to data with unbalanced design, but we have not evaluated the performance of these methods for unbalanced data.
