```									Appendix 3 Numerical Stability of Simulation Output

The tables in this appendix report the central estimate and the 95% confidence interval (2.5th percentile and 97.5th percentile) for each output summary statistic (mean, and percentiles: 5th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 95th). The two summary statistics analyzed here are 1) the number of additional infected cattle (i.e., cattle infected after the initial introduction into the U.S. of 500 infected cattle) and 2) the amount of BSE infectivity (quantified as cattle oral ID50s) in food potentially available for human consumption. The confidence intervals were computed for each set of 50,000 simulation trials using SAS procedure UNIVARIATE, option ciquantdf (SAS version 9.1 for Windows, Cary NC).
