Histogram of Relative Confidence Intervals. Relative confidence intervals in the full (A) and simplified model (B). The relative confidence interval, the ratio of confidence interval length to the optimal parameter value, is a measure of the resolution of individual parameters, with smaller values indicating better resolution. The full model had 84 parameters, while the simplified model had 36 parameters.
