Description

This function plots a power curve at each time and returns a subsetted data frame that match the list of input parameters.

Usage

plot_power(table_df, N, type, exp.prop, min.futime, min.postexp.futime,
    show.plot = FALSE, newplot = FALSE, col = NULL, lty, lwd, pch)

Arguments

table_df

A data frame read from a .csv file of a format output from the getpower.method1 function.

N

Number of subjects needs to be screened

type

A text string indicating the what type of dataset is of interest. Either one of "fixed" or "td" should be inputted

exp.prop

A numeric value between 0 and 1 (not include 0 and 1) that represents the proportion of subjects that are assigned with an exposure

min.futime

A numeric value that represents minimum follow-up time (in months). The default value is 0, which means no minimum follow-up time is considered. If it has a positive value, this argument will help exclude subjects that only spend a short amount of time in the study

min.postexp.futime

A numeric value that represents minimum post-exposure follow-up time (in months). The default value is 0, which means no minimum post-exposure follow-up time is considered. If it has a positive value, this argument will help exclude subjects that only spend a short amount of time in the study after their exposure

show.plot

A logical value indicating whether to output a power curve or not. The default value is TRUE

newplot

A logical value indicating whether to create a new plot or add to an existing plot

col,lty,lwd,pch

Graphical parameters as in the regular plot function in R

Details

The gist of this function is that the user can check the plot with the values in the output data frame. Moreover, it is flexible that the user can choose to only output the data frame in order to plot their own graph (such as add titles or legends) based on the data. The user can also add as many lines as possible to an existing power curve plot so that he/she is allowed to compare different scenarios.

Value

A data.frame object with columns corresponding to

i_N

Number of subjects needs to be screened, specified by the user

N_eff

Simulated number of evaluable subjects, which is the resulting number of subjects with or without considering minimum follow-up time and/or minimum post-exposure follow-up time

i_beta

Input value of regression coefficient (log hazard ratio)

pow

Simulated statistical power from the Cox regression model on data with time-dependent exposure
