Probability of familial clustering of disease

Share:

Description

To calculate exact probability of familial clustering of disease

Usage

1
pfc(famdata,enum)

Arguments

famdata

collective information of sib size, number of affected sibs and their frequencies

enum

a switch taking value 1 if all possible tables are to be enumerated

Value

The returned value is a list containing (tailp,sump,nenum are only available if enum=1):

p

the probabitly of familial clustering

stat

the deviances, chi-squares based on binomial and hypergeometric distributions, the degrees of freedom should take into account the number of marginals used

tailp

the exact statistical significance

sump

sum of the probabilities used for error checking

nenum

the total number of tables enumerated
