estimate_semipmetric_erf {CausalGPS}R Documentation

Estimate Semi-exposure-response Function (semi-ERF).

Description

Estimates the smoothed exposure-response function using a generalized additive model with splines.

Usage

estimate_semipmetric_erf(formula, family, data, ci_appr)

Arguments

formula

a vector of outcome variable in matched set.

family

a description of the error distribution (see ?gam).

data

dataset that formula is build upon.

ci_appr

causal inference approach (matching or weighting).

Details

This approach uses Generalized Additive Model (gam) using mgcv package.

Value

returns an object of class gam
