Description

prec_lim_agree returns the sample size or the precision for the limit of agreement, i.e. the confidence interval around the limit of agreement, expressed in SD-units. It is an approximation based on the Normal distribution, instead of a Student t distribution.

Usage

1
prec_lim_agree(n = NULL, conf.width = NULL, conf.level = 0.95)

Arguments

n

sample size.

conf.width

precision (the full width of the confidence interval).

conf.level

confidence level.

Details

Exactly one of the parameters n or conf.width must be passed as NULL, and that parameter is determined from the other.

The sample size and precision are calculated according to formulae in Bland & Altman (1986). The CI width is a simple function of the sample size only.

Value

Object of class "presize", a list of arguments (including the computed one) augmented with method and note elements.
