power.ftest: Power Calculations for an F-test

Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

View source: R/power_ftest.R

Description

Compute power of test or determine parameters to obtain target power. Inspired by the pwr.f2.test function in the pwr package, but allows for varying noncentrality parameter estimates for a more liberal (default in pwr.f2.test) or conservative (default in this function) estimates (see Aberson, Chapter 5, pg 72).

power.ftest(
  num_df = NULL,
  den_df = NULL,
  cohen_f = NULL,
  alpha_level = Superpower_options("alpha_level"),
  beta_level = NULL,
  liberal_lambda = Superpower_options("liberal_lambda")
)

Arguments

num_df

degrees of freedom for numerator

den_df

degrees of freedom for denominator

cohen_f

Cohen's f effect size. Note: this is the sqrt(f2) if you are used to using pwr.f2.test

alpha_level

Alpha level used to determine statistical significance.

beta_level

Type II error probability (power/100-1)

liberal_lambda

Logical indicator of whether to use the liberal (cohen_f^2\*(num_df+den_df)) or conservative (cohen_f^2\*den_df) calculation of the noncentrality (lambda) parameter estimate. Default is FALSE.

Value

num_df = degrees of freedom for numerator, den_df = degrees of freedom for denominator, cohen_f = Cohen's f effect size, alpha_level = Type 1 error probability, beta_level = Type 2 error probability, power = Power of test (1-beta_level\*100 lambda = Noncentrality parameter estimate (default = cohen_f^2\*den_df, liberal = cohen_f^2\*(num_df+den_df))
