efficiency.criteria {dae} R Documentation

## Computes efficiency criteria from a set of efficiency factors

### Description

Computes efficiency criteria from a set of efficiency factors.

### Usage

efficiency.criteria(efficiencies)

### Arguments

 efficiencies A numeric containing a set of efficiency factors.

### Details

The aefficiency criterion is the harmonic mean of the nonzero efficiency factors. The mefficiency criterion is the mean of the nonzero efficiency factors. The eefficiency criterion is the minimum of the nonzero efficiency factors. The sefficiency criterion is the variance of the nonzero efficiency factors. The xefficiency is the maximum of the efficiency factors. The order is the order of balance and is the number of unique nonzero efficiency factors. The dforthog is the number of efficiency factors that are equal to one.

### Value

A list whose components are aefficiency, mefficiency, sefficiency, eefficiency, xefficiency, order and dforthog.

### Examples

## PBIBD(2) from p. 379 of Cochran and Cox (1957) Experimental Designs.
## 2nd edn Wiley, New York
PBIBD2.unit <- list(Block = 6, Unit = 4)
PBIBD2.nest <- list(Unit = "Block")
trt <- factor(c(1,4,2,5, 2,5,3,6, 3,6,1,4, 4,1,5,2, 5,2,6,3, 6,3,4,1))
PBIBD2.lay <- designRandomize(allocated = trt,
recipient = PBIBD2.unit,
nested.recipients = PBIBD2.nest)

## obtain sets of projectors
unit.struct <- pstructure(~ Block/Unit, data = PBIBD2.lay)
trt.struct <- pstructure(~ trt, data = PBIBD2.lay)

## save intrablock efficiencies
eff.inter <- proj2.efficiency(unit.struct$Q[["Unit[Block]"]], trt.struct$Q[["trt"]])

## calculate efficiency criteria
efficiency.criteria(eff.inter)
