static: Static Intervention

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/interventions.R

Description

This function implements a static intervention (i.e., either constant treatment or no treatment over all time points) for the specified intervention variable in the data table newdf.

Usage

1
static(newdf, pool, intvar, intvals, time_name, t)

Arguments

newdf

Data table containing the simulated data at time t.

pool

Data table containing the simulated data at times before t.

intvar

Character string specifying the name of the variable to be intervened on in each round of the simulation.

intvals

A list of length 1. The entry is the value of static treatment to be assigned to intvar.

time_name

Character string specifying the name of the time variable in pool and newdf.

t

Integer specifying the current time index.

Value

No value is returned. The data table newdf is modified in place.
