Conducts sensitivity analyses for unmeasured confounding for either an observational study or a meta-analysis of observational studies. For a single observational study, the package reports E-values, defined as the minimum strength of association on the risk ratio scale that an unmeasured confounder would need to have with both the treatment and the outcome to fully explain away a specific treatment-outcome association, conditional on the measured covariates. One can use one of the evalues.XX() functions to compute E-values for the relevant outcome types. Outcome types include risk ratios, odds ratio with common or rare outcomes, hazard ratios with common or rare outcomes, and standardized differences in outcomes. Optionally, one can use the bias_plot() function to plot the bias factor as a function of two sensitivity parameters. (See VanderWeele & Ding, 2017 [
