Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/cen_signedranktest.R

Description

Performs a nonparametric Wilcoxon signed-rank test of whether the median difference between two columns of paired censored data equals 0. Uses the Pratt adjustment for pairs of equal or indistinguishable values.

Usage

1
cen_signedranktest(xd, xc, yd, yc, alternative = "two.sided", printstat = TRUE)

Arguments

xd

The first column of data values plus detection limits

xc

The column of censoring indicators for xd, where 1 (or TRUE) indicates a detection limit in the xd column, and 0 (or FALSE) indicates a detected value in xd.

yd

The second column of data values plus detection limits, or a single number representing a standard / guideline value.

yc

The column of censoring indicators for yd, where 1 (or TRUE) indicates a detection limit in the yd column, and 0 (or FALSE) indicates a detected value in yd. Not needed if yd is a single standard number.

alternative

The usual notation for the alternate hypothesis. Default is “two.sided”. Options are “greater” or “less”.

printstat

Logical TRUE/FALSE option of whether to print the resulting statistics in the console window, or not. Default is TRUE.

Value

Prints a list of Wilcoxon Signed-Rank test with Pratt correction for ties statistics containing the following components:
