FixedMean {clinDR}R Documentation

Fixed means (proportions) random data constructor for emaxsim for continuous or binary data

Description

Creates a list object that contains inputs and a function to create simulated data sets with a common mean (proportion) for use in emaxsim with normal or continuous data

Usage

FixedMean(n, doselev, meanlev, resSD, parm = NULL, binary=FALSE)

Arguments

n

Sample size for each dose group

doselev

Dose levels (including 0 for placebo) in the study corresponding to n. Must be in increasing order.

meanlev

Mean response at each doselev. For binary data, these are the proportion of responders (no logit transformation).

resSD

Standard deviation for residuals within each dose group (assumed common to all dose groups)

parm

Population parameters that are saved for later reference, but are not used when creating simulated data. parm can contain parameters for a 3- or 4- parameter Emax model that generated meanlev. They should be stored in the order given in emaxfun. Default is NULL.

binary

Normal data with homogeneous variance are generated unless binary is TRUE, and then means are interpreted as proportions and 0/1 data are generated.

Value

A list of length 2. The first element is itself a list named genP that contains named elments n, resSD, doselev, dose, parm, binary, and the element meanlev, which is specific to FixedMean. The second element is a function named genFun that takes genP as input and returns a list with named elements meanlev, parm, resSD, y.
