hybdesEco: Hybrid Design in the Pure Ecological setting - MLE

Description Usage Arguments Author(s) References

View source: R/hybdesEco.R

Description

Computes the MLE for a Hybrid Design in the pure ecological setting, with two binary covariates, Z and W, in the model. hybdesEco is specific to the model logit(P(Y=1)) = b0 + b1*Z + b2*W

Usage

1
hybdesEco(MM.Z, MM.W, NN, cc, aprx = "binom", start.mle = NA, group.int = FALSE)

Arguments

MM.Z

MM.Z is a matrix of margin totals for covariate Z. Rows are groups, columns are margin totals

MM.W

MM.W is a matrix of margin totals for covariate W. Rows are groups, columns are margin totals

NN

NN is a matrix of outcome margin totals. Rows are groups, columns are margin totals. NN is always a K x 2 matrix, where K is the number of groups

cc

cc is a list of case-control data. Each element is a table with joint Z-W exposure (rows) and outcome (columns)

aprx

Type of approximation to use when calculating the hybrid likelihood. Default is the binomial approximation.

start.mle

Starting value for the Newton-Raphson algorithm used to determine Hybrid Design MLE.

group.int

A logical indicator of whether or not groups should be treated as having different intercept parameters.
