When calculating a confidence interval for the difference between two means, what information are you gaining?

The means are from both same population and different?

Thank you.

• statistics -

You are gaining information about the population. You are estimating the difference in population means by using the difference in the sample means. You also make a few assumptions, such as the populations have the same variance and the populations are normally distributed.
