VAR_INMB_DIFF: A Reference Class to represent the variance of the...

Description Fields See Also Examples

Description

The variance of the Incremental Net Monetary Benefit may also be calculated in a hypothetical situation when the standard deviation of costs and effectiveness in each group differ.

Fields

sdc_ref

: standard deviation of costs in the reference group

sdc_exp

: standard deviation of costs in the experimental group

sde_exp

: standard deviation of effectiveness in the experimental group

sde_ref

: standard deviation of effectiveness in the reference group

rho

: coefficient of correlation between the difference in costs (dc) and the difference in effectiveness (de)

object_lambda

: object containing the ceiling cost-effectiveness ratio or maximum acceptable cost of a unit of effectiveness. See create_object_lambda

## First, create a lambda object
object_lambda <- create_object_lambda (20000)
## Then, create a var_inmb_diff object
var_inmb_diff <- create_object_var_inmb_diff(sdc_ref=2100, sdc_exp=2100, sde_ref = 0.12,
sde_exp = 0.12, rho = 0.1,object_lambda = object_lambda)
