Approximate Confidence Intervals for a Robust Scale Parameter.
Budescu, David V.
Psychometrika, v45 n3 p397-402 Sep 1980

This note presents distribution-free asymptotic confidence intervals for its population value in the one sample case and for difference in the two sample situations. (Author/JKS)
