get_VPC(object)

## S3 method for class 'plcp'
get_VPC(object)

Arguments

object

An object created by study_parameters

Details

For partially nested studies, the VPC is calculated for the treatment group.

Value

a data.frame with class plcp_VPC containing the percentage of variance per level and time point. The column between_clusters is also the intraclass correlation for level three, i.e. the correlation between two subjects belonging to the same cluster at a specific time point. With random slopes in the model the variances per time point will be a quadratic function of time. tot_var is the percentage increase or decrease in total variance relative to baseline variance.

The plot method returns a ggplot2::ggplot object.
