characteristics.pool: Testing expenditure for informative Dorfman testing

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/Dorfman.Functions.R

Description

Calculate the expectation and variation of the testing expenditure of a pool used with informative Dorfman testing.

Usage

1

Arguments

p

a vector of each individual's probability of infection.

se

the sensitivity of the diagnostic test.

sp

the specificity of the diagnostic test.

Details

This function calculates the expected value and variance of the testing expenditure of a pool of size greater than or equal to one used with informative Dorfman testing. Calculations of these measures are done using the equations presented in McMahan et al. (2012).

Value

a list containing:

e

the expected testing expenditure of the pool.

v

the variation of the testing expenditure of the pool.

Author(s)
