biostatUZH: Misc Tools of the Department of Biostatistics, EBPI, University of Zurich

Various functions developed at the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Prevention Institute, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland. Currently implemented topics: several CI's for proportions, several CI's for diagnostic tests, Fagan-Nomogram, bootstrap CI's for the kappa coefficient, intraclass-correlation coefficients including CI's, agreement for continuous measurements (Bland-Altman plot), CI for the area under the curve (AUC), Mantel-Haenszel estimator, Mantel-Cox hazard ratio estimator, CI for the Kaplan-Meier estimate at given time points, CI for quantile of a Kaplan-Meier or cumulative incidence estimate, sample size computations for two-sample Mann-Whitney test, McNemar test, binary diagnostic test (via normal approximation and simulation), natural re-parametrization of Weibull output from survreg, hazard ratio and event time ratio interpretations, a plot to check the adequacy of the Weibull model.
