MultEq-package: Equivalence for multiple endpoints

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

The package provides tests and confidence intervals for comparing two treatments when there is more than one primary response variable (endpoint). The step-up procedure of Quan et al. (2001) is both applied for differences and extended to ratios of means of normally distributed data with equal group variances. A related single-step procedure is also available.
