Simulated data for the computation of normalised prediction distribution errors, viral load example

Description

The simvirload dataset contains 1000 simulations using the design of dataset virload. These simulations are used to compute npde.

Usage

1

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

ID

an ordered factor with levels 1, ..., 50 identifying the subject on whom the observation was made. The ordering is first by simulation then by increasing time.

xsim

time (day).

ysim

simulated viral loads, in base 10 log-scale (cp/L).

Details

See virload for a description of the original dataset.

The simulated data was obtained using the software R, as described in Nguyen et al. (2011).
