ipd2diag {diagmeta}R Documentation

Individual participant data to enter them into diagmeta

Description

Function to transform individual patient data (IPD) to enter them into diagmeta

Usage

ipd2diag(studlab, value, status)

Arguments

studlab

A vector with study labels

value

A vector with individual patients' measurements of a discrete or continuous variable

status

A vector with information of the individual's status (0 = non-diseased, 1 = diseased)

Value

A data frame with values that can be entered into diagmeta.
