Creating Confidence Intervals on a Linear Model in R

Steven Sanderson goes frequentist on us:

Linear regression is a fundamental statistical technique used to model the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. While fitting a linear model is relatively straightforward in R, it’s also essential to understand the uncertainty associated with our model’s predictions. One way to visualize this uncertainty is by creating confidence intervals around the regression line. In this blog post, we’ll walk through how to perform linear regression and plot confidence intervals using base R with the popular Iris dataset.
