## Generate Data to use in COMBO Functions

### Description

Generate Data to use in COMBO Functions

### Usage

COMBO_data(sample_size, x_mu, x_sigma, z_shape, beta, gamma)


### Arguments

 sample_size An integer specifying the sample size of the generated data set. x_mu A numeric value specifying the mean of x predictors generated from a Normal distribution. x_sigma A positive numeric value specifying the standard deviation of x predictors generated from a Normal distribution. z_shape A positive numeric value specifying the shape parameter of z predictors generated from a Gamma distribution. beta A column matrix of \beta parameter values (intercept, slope) to generate data under in the true outcome mechanism. gamma A numeric matrix of \gamma parameters to generate data under in the observation mechanism. In matrix form, the gamma matrix rows correspond to intercept (row 1) and slope (row 2) terms. The gamma parameter matrix columns correspond to the true outcome categories Y \in \{1, 2\}.

### Value

COMBO_data returns a list of generated data elements:

 obs_Y A vector of observed outcomes. true_Y A vector of true outcomes. obs_Y_matrix A numeric matrix of indicator variables (0, 1) for the observed outcome Y*. Rows of the matrix correspond to each subject. Columns of the matrix correspond to each observed outcome category. Each row contains exactly one 0 entry and exactly one 1 entry. x A vector of generated predictor values in the true outcome mechanism, from the Normal distribution. z A vector of generated predictor values in the observation mechanism from the Gamma distribution. x_design_matrix The design matrix for the x predictor. z_design_matrix The design matrix for the z predictor.

### Examples

set.seed(123)
n <- 500
x_mu <- 0
x_sigma <- 1
z_shape <- 1

true_beta <- matrix(c(1, -2), ncol = 1)
true_gamma <- matrix(c(.5, 1, -.5, -1), nrow = 2, byrow = FALSE)

my_data <- COMBO_data(sample_size = n,
x_mu = x_mu, x_sigma = x_sigma,
z_shape = z_shape,
beta = true_beta, gamma = true_gamma)
table(my_data[["obs_Y"]], my_data[["true_Y"]])
