## B-Value and Empirical Equivalence Bound

### Description

Bvalue package calculates B-value and empirical equivalence bound. B-value is defined as the maximum magnitude of a confidence interval; and the empirical equivalence bound is the minimum B-value at a certain level. A new two-stage procedure for hypothesis testing is proposed, where the first stage is conventional hypothesis testing and the second is an equivalence testing procedure using the introduced empirical equivalence bound.
