bi2dipow {EQUIVNONINF}R Documentation

Exact rejection probability of the asymptotic test for equivalence of two unrelated binomial proportions with respect to the difference of their expectations at any nominal level under an arbitrary parameter configuration

Description

The program computes exact values of the rejection probability of the asymptotic test for equivalence in the sense of -δ_1 < p_1-p_2 < δ_2, at any nominal level α_0. [The largest α_0 for which the test is valid in terms of the significance level, can be computed by means of the program bi2diffac.]

POWEX0

exact rejection probability under (p_1,p_2) of the test at nominal level α_0 for equivalence of two binomial distributions with respect to the difference of the success probabilities

ERROR

error indicator answering the question of whether or not the sufficient condition for the correctness of the result output by the program, was satisfied
