A type of bias. Declares that selection bias will be a component of interest in the multi-bias sensitivity analysis. Generally used within other functions; its output is returned invisibly.

`...` |
Optional arguments describing the type of potential selection bias. Options are "general" (general selection bias, the default if no options are chosen), "increased risk" and "decreased risk" (assumptions about the direction of risk in the selected population), "S = U" (simplification used if the biasing characteristic is common to the entire selected population), and "selected" (when the target of inference is the selected population only). Errors are produced when incompatible assumptions are chosen. |

Invisibly returns a list with components whose values depend on the
options chosen: `n`

(the degree of the polynomial in the numerator), `d`

(the degree of the polynomial in the denominator),`mess`

(any
messages/warnings that should be printed for the user), and
`bias`

("selection").
