characteristics.pool {binGroup} | R Documentation |
Calculate the expectation and variation of the testing expenditure of a pool used with informative Dorfman testing.
characteristics.pool(p, se, sp)
p |
a vector of each individual's probability of infection. |
se |
the sensitivity of the diagnostic test. |
sp |
the specificity of the diagnostic test. |
This function calculates the expected value and variance of the testing expenditure of a pool of size greater than or equal to one used with informative Dorfman testing. Calculations of these measures are done using the equations presented in McMahan et al. (2012).
a list containing:
e |
the expected testing expenditure of the pool. |
v |
the variation of the testing expenditure of the pool. |
This function was originally written by Christopher S. McMahan for McMahan et al. (2012). The function was obtained from http://chrisbilder.com/grouptesting.
