Conducts inference on effect ratio as described in Section 3.3 of Baiocchi (2010), resulting in an estimate and a permutation based confidence interval for the effect ratio.

1 |

`dta` |
Data frame where first column is outcome and second column is treatment |

`match` |
Data frame where first column contains indices for those individuals encouraged into treatment by instrumental variable and second column contains indices for those individuals discouraged from treatment by instrumental variable |

`alpha` |
Level of confidence interval |

`est.emp` |
Empirical estimate of effect ratio |

`est.HL` |
Hodges-Lehmann type estimate of effect ratio |

`lower` |
Lower limit to 1-alpha/2 confidence interval for effect ratio |

`upper` |
Upper limit to 1-alpha/2 confidence interval for effect ratio |
