The second method (the calculation of the median confidence interval from the binomial distribution) is based on the positions of the lower limit and the upper limit of the interval from the application of the binomial distribution, given that the number of observations below the percentile k follows this distribution with parameters n and k (Bland, 2003, DeCoster and Burchill, 2000) and the median is the central point of distribution k = .5.
