Freecalc optimum sample size and cut-point number of positives

Share:

Description

Calculates optimum sample size and cut-point number of positives to achieve specified population sensitivity, for given population size and other parameters, using freecalc algorithm, all paramaters must be scalars

Usage

1
n.c.freecalc(N, sep = 0.95, c = 1, se, sp = 1, pstar, minSpH = 0.95)

Arguments

N

population size

sep

target population sensitivity

c

The maximum allowed cut-point number of positives to classify a cluster as positive, default=1, if positives < c result is negative, >= c is positive

se

test unit sensitivity

sp

test unit specificity, default=1

pstar

design prevalence as a proportion or integer (number of infected units)

minSpH

minimium desired population specificity

Value

a list of 3 elements, a dataframe with 1 row and six columns for the recommended sample size and corresponding values for population sensitivity (SeP), population specificity (SpP), N, c and pstar, a vector of SeP values and a vector of SpP values, for n = 1:N
