Did you ? Forum ? Statistical Research ? Statistical Research? ?

Because you intend to know the variance, I feel that
is very inaccurate to get Confidence Intervals from it.
The extreme quantiles, 0.025, 0.975 or 0.005 0.995 are
the only that provide the *central* (in Probability)
alpha 5% and 1% respectively, based on yours 400´000
In what concerns the skew and kurtosis estimation I would carefully chose them, I mean!
