preparePsPlot {EvidenceSynthesis}R Documentation

Prepare to plot the propensity score distribution

Description

Prepare to plot the propensity (or preference) score distribution. It computes the distribution, so the output does not contain person-level data.

Usage

preparePsPlot(data, unfilteredData = NULL, scale = "preference")

Arguments

data

A data frame with at least the two columns described below

unfilteredData

To be used when computing preference scores on data from which subjects have already been removed, e.g. through trimming and/or matching. This data frame should have the same structure as data.

scale

The scale of the graph. Two scales are supported: scale = 'propensity' or scale = 'preference'. The preference score scale is defined by Walker et al. (2013).

Details

The data frame should have a least the following two columns:

Value

A data frame describing the propensity score (or preference score) distribution at 100 equally-spaced points.

Examples

# Simulate some data for this example:
treatment <- rep(0:1, each = 100)
propensityScore <- c(rnorm(100, mean = 0.4, sd = 0.25), rnorm(100, mean = 0.6, sd = 0.25))
data <- data.frame(treatment = treatment, propensityScore = propensityScore)
data <- data[data$propensityScore > 0 & data$propensityScore < 1, ]

preparedPlot <- preparePsPlot(data)
