Unemployment rate

Over the last 16 years, the country's unemployment rate has changed according to the following frequency table:
years of unemployment: 2 5 2 3 3 1
unemploymen rate: 0.5 1 1.5 2 2.5 3 in % (percent).

Determine the two-sided confidence interval for the variance DN with a confidence level of 0.95.

Correct answer:

a =  1.224 %
b =  1.9635 %
