simulate_su_hill_data: Simulate data with scenarios from Hill and Su (2013)

Description Usage Arguments Details Value

View source: R/simulate-su-hill.R

Description

Sample n observations with the following scheme:

  1. Covariates: X_j ~ N(0,1).

  2. Assignment: Z ~ Bin(n, p) with p = logit^{-1}(a + X γ^L + Q γ^N) where a = ω - mean(X γ^L + Q γ^N).

  3. Mean response: E(Y(0)|X) = X β_0^L + Q β_0^N and E(Y(1)|X) = X β_1^L + Q β_1^N.

  4. Observation: Y ~ N(μ,σ_y^2)).

Superscript L denotes the linear components, whilst N denotes the non-linear components.

Arguments

n

Size of simulated sample.

treatment_linear

Treatment assignment mechanism is linear?

response_parallel

Response surface is parallel?

response_aligned

Response surface is aligned?

y_sd

Observation noise.

tau

Treatment effect for parallel response surfaces. Not applicable if surface is nonparallel.

omega

Offset to control treatment assignment ratios.

add_categorical

Should a categorical variable be added? (Not in Hill and Su)

coef_categorical_treatment

What are the coefficients of the categorical variable under treatment? (Not in Hill and Su)

coef_categorical_nontreatment

What are the coefficients of the categorical variable under nontreatment? (Not in Hill and Su)

Details

Coefficients used are returned in the list this function creates. See Table 1 in Su and Hill (2013) for the table of coefficients. The X_j are in a data.frame named data in the returned list. The formula for the model matrix [X,Q] is named su_hill_formula in the returned list. The coefficients used for the model matrix are contained in coefs. The Su and Hill (2013) simulations did not include categorical variables, but you can add them here using arguments: add_categorical, coef_categorical_treatment, coef_categorical_nontreatment.
