 French term or phrase: IT Full context: "Odd ratio compris entre 1,4 et 2,2 pour un IT à 95 %" I am unsure as to what the "IT" stands for in this phrase. It is a footnote to sentence which reads: "Lec conducteurs sous l'influence du cannabis ont 1,8 fois plus de risque d'être responsable d'un accident mortel de route." The footnote is placed after the figure of 1.8.

agree  xxxdf49f: ça me semblerait en effet plus logique (que "intervalle de temps en % qui n'aurait pas grand sens) - l'IC est couramment utilisé pour des statistiques de ce genre

time slot

Explanation:
After reading the sentence given as the foot note regarding drivers having cannabis are more susceptible to make fatal accidents, I concluded with some cofidence that the figure given above refers to the time slot.I found this meaning in the Grand ditionary francaise. there is also another meaning for IT under medicine as transmission rate which I pressume refers to infectious diseases.
