Plots for iptw objects


This function produces a collection of diagnostic plots for iptw objects.


## S3 method for class 'iptw'
  plots = "optimize",
  subset = NULL,
  color = TRUE,
  timePeriods = NULL,
  multiPage = FALSE,
  figureRows = NULL,
  hline = c(0.1, 0.5, 0.8),



An iptw object.


An indicator of which type of plot is desired. The options are

  • ⁠"optimize" or 1⁠ A plot of the balance criteria as a function of the GBM iteration.

  • ⁠"boxplot" or 2⁠ Boxplots of the propensity scores for the treatment and control cases

  • ⁠"es" or 3⁠ Plots of the standardized effect size of the pre-treatment variables before and after reweighing

  • ⁠"t" or 4⁠ Plots of the p-values from t-statistics comparing means of treated and control subjects for pretreatment variables, before and after weighting.

  • ⁠"ks" or 5⁠ Plots of the p-values from Kolmogorov-Smirnov statistics comparing distributions of pretreatment variables of treated and control subjects, before and after weighting.


Used to restrict which of the stop.methods will be used in the figure. For example subset = c(1,3) would indicate that the first and third stop.methods (in alphabetical order of those specified in the original call to iptw) should be included in the figure.


If color = FALSE, figures will be gray scale. Default: TRUE.


The number of distinct time points. If NULL, this is assumed to be the number of ps objects (i.e., the number of distinct time points).


When multiple frames of a figure are produced, multiPage = TRUE will print each frame on a different page. This is intended for situations where the graphical output is being saved to a file. Default: FALSE.


The figure rows, passed to displayPlots. Default: NULL.


Arguments passed to panel.abline.


Additional arguments.


This function produces lattice-style graphics of diagnostic plots.
