Odds Ratio and Score CI of two groups by MN method

Description

Odds ratio and its score confidence interval of two groups without stratification

Usage

  ORmn1(y1, n1, y2, n2, conf.level=0.95)

Arguments

y1

positive event count of test (the first) group

n1

total count of the test (the first) group

y2

positive event count of control (the second) group

n2

total count of control (the second) group

conf.level

confidence level

Details

It calculates odds ratio and its score confidence interval of two groups. The confidence interval is asymmetric and there is no standard error in the output. This does not support stratification. This implementation uses nlminb minimization function which usually gives about 7 significant digits. PropCIs::orscoreci function uses incremental or decremental search by the factor of 1.001 which gives only about 3 siginicant digits.

Value

The result is a data.frame. There is no standard error.

odd1

odd from the first group, y1/(n1 - y1)

odd2

odd from the second group, y2/(n2 - y2)

OR

odds ratio, odd1/odd2

lower

lower confidence limit of OR

upper

upper confidence limit of OR
