computeDiffSE

Description

Takes two sets of initial estimates and bootstrap estimations (they need to have the same number of iterations) and determines whether or not the estimates are statistically different from each other. It can be used to compare any sets of estimates, but it is particularly used here to compare estimates from observational methods with observations from the experimental data (which also have standard errors because, even though the estimates are cleanly identified, they are still estimated).

Usage

1
computeDiffSE(est1, bootIters1, est2, bootIters2, alp = 0.05)

Arguments

est1

A QTE object containing the first set of estimates

bootIters1

A List of QTE objects that have been bootstrapped

est2

A QTE object containing a second set of estimates

bootIters2

A List of QTE objects that have been bootstrapped using the second method

alp

The significance level used for constructing bootstrap confidence intervals
