hochberg: Hochberg (1988) step-up procedure

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

The Hochberg step-up procedure is based on marginal p-values. It controls the FWER in the strong sense under joint null distributions of the test statistics that satisfy Simes' inequality.

Usage

1
hochberg(pValues, alpha, silent=FALSE)

Arguments

pValues

The used raw pValues.

alpha

The level at which the FDR shall be controlled.

silent

If true any output on the console will be suppressed.

Details

The Hochberg procedure is more powerful than Holm's (1979) procedure, but the test statistics need to be independent or have a distribution with multivariate total positivity of order two or a scale mixture thereof for its validity (Sarkar, 1998). Both procedures use the same set of critical values c(i)=alpha/(m-i+1). Whereas Holm's procedure is a step-down version of the Bonferroni test, and Hochberg's is a step-up version of the Bonferroni test. Note that Holm's method is based on the Bonferroni inequality and is valid regardless of the joint distribution of the test statistics.

Value

A list containing:

adjPValues

A numeric vector containing the adjusted pValues

rejected

A logical vector indicating which hypotheses are rejected

criticalValues

A numeric vector containing critical values used in the step-up-down test

errorControl

A Mutoss S4 class of type errorControl, containing the type of error controlled by the function and the level alpha.
