iddplacebo(eventvar, popvar, treatvar, postvar, timevar, idvar, data,
  iter = 10)

Arguments

eventvar

Name of the event count variable.

popvar

The person-time (or another exposure) variable.

treatvar

The treatment group indicator dummy (0 for controls, 1 for treated units).

postvar

The post-period indicator dummy (0 for all time points in the pre-intervention period, 1 for all time points in the post-period)

timevar

The time variable (can be coded on any scale).

idvar

The panel id variable.

data

A long-form panel dataset containing the supplied variables.

iter

The number of subsampling iterations. Defaults to 10, but 500-1000 are usually recommended.

Value

Returns a list containing the following elements: $Resdata: a data frame containing the results. $ECDF: the empirical cumulative distribution function. $Effects: a long-form data frame containing the estimated placebo effects. $Treat.ratio: a data frame containing the post/pre-RMSE ratio for the treated unit. $supp_stats: a data frame containing supplementary statistics (p-values etc).
