Description

This is a wrapper for confounded_meta that estimates, without any adjustment for confounding bias, the proportion of effect sizes above or below a specified threshold. Effect sizes may be of any type (they need not be relative risks).

Usage

stronger_than(.q, .yr, .vyr = NULL, .t2, .vt2 = NULL, CI.level = 0.95,
  .tail)

Arguments

.q

True effect size that is the threshold for "scientific significance"

.yr

Pooled point estimate from meta-analysis

.vyr

Estimated variance of pooled point estimate from meta-analysis

.t2

Estimated heterogeneity (tau^2) from meta-analysis

.vt2

Estimated variance of tau^2 from meta-analysis

CI.level

Confidence level as a proportion

.tail

above for the proportion of effects above .q; below for the proportion of effects below .q.
