Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also

Description

Use a logistic regression model to predict Treatment Selection from Patient Baseline X-covariates in Supervised Propensity Scoring.

Usage

1
SPSlogit(envir, dframe, form, pfit, prnk, qbin, bins = 5, appn = "")

Arguments

envir

name of the working local control classic environment.

dframe

data.frame containing X, t and Y variables.

form

Valid formula for glm()with family = binomial(), with the two-level treatment factor variable as the left-hand-side of the formula.

pfit

Name of variable to store PS predictions.

prnk

Name of variable to store tied-ranks of PS predictions.

qbin

Name of variable to store the assigned bin number for each patient.

bins

optional; number of adjacent PS bins desired; default to 5.

appn

optional; append the pfit, prank and qbin variables to the input dfname when appn=="", else save augmented data.frame to name specified within a non-blank appn string.

Details

The first phase of Supervised Propensity Scoring is to develop a logit (or probit) model predicting treatment choice from patient baseline X characteristics. SPSlogit uses a call to glm()with family = binomial() to fit a logistic regression.
