Freecalc sample size for a finite population and specified cut-point number of positives

Share:

Description

Calculates sample size required for a specified population sensitivity, for a given population size, cut-point number of positives and other parameters, using Freecalc algorithm. All paramaters must be scalars

Usage

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

Arguments

N

population size

sep

target population sensitivity

c

The 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 2 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 and a dataframe of n rows with SeP and SpP values for each value of n up to the recommended value
