Description

This function replicates 100 times the before and after values giving a start and end reference.

Usage

1

Arguments

x

a data frame containing the variables to be analyzed.

start

a start value for mu.

end

an end value for mu.

by

an increment for the sequence, if not informed (default) the increment is caluculated as the difference between end-start.

Before

a numeric vector giving the data values for the first (before) measure.

After

a numeric vector giving the data values for the second (after) measure.

data

an optional data frame containing the before and after variables in the formula. By default the variables are taken from environment (formula)

.

Details

In order to overcome the limitation of Mee and Chua's test regarding the population mean mu a replication of the data is performed.

After replicating the data the unknown population mean mu is systematically estimated over a range of values. Further estimations will be based on this new dataset.

Value

Return a data frame named mee_chua containing the values for mu, before and after.
