## Confidence intervals for drtmle objects

### Description

Confidence intervals for drtmle objects

### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'drtmle'
ci(object, est = c("drtmle"), level = 0.95, contrast = NULL, ...)
```

### Arguments

`object` |
An object of class |

`est` |
A vector indicating for which estimators to return a
confidence interval. Possible estimators include the TMLE with doubly robust
inference ( |

`level` |
The nominal coverage probability of the desired confidence interval (should be between 0 and 1). Default computes 95\ intervals. |

`contrast` |
Specifies the parameter for which to return confidence
intervals. If |

`...` |
Other options (not currently used). |

### Value

An object of class `"ci.drtmle"`

with point estimates and
confidence intervals of the specified level.

### Examples

```
# load super learner
library(SuperLearner)
# simulate data
set.seed(123456)
n <- 100
W <- data.frame(W1 = runif(n), W2 = rnorm(n))
A <- rbinom(n, 1, plogis(W$W1 - W$W2))
Y <- rbinom(n, 1, plogis(W$W1 * W$W2 * A))
# fit drtmle with maxIter = 1 to run fast
fit1 <- drtmle(
W = W, A = A, Y = Y, a_0 = c(1, 0),
family = binomial(),
stratify = FALSE,
SL_Q = c("SL.glm", "SL.mean"),
SL_g = c("SL.glm", "SL.mean"),
SL_Qr = "SL.npreg",
SL_gr = "SL.npreg", maxIter = 1
)
# get confidence intervals for each mean
ci_mean <- ci(fit1)
# get confidence intervals for ATE
ci_ATE <- ci(fit1, contrast = c(1, -1))
# get confidence intervals for risk ratio by
# computing CI on log scale and back-transforming
myContrast <- list(
f = function(eff) {
log(eff)
},
f_inv = function(eff) {
exp(eff)
},
h = function(est) {
est[1] / est[2]
},
fh_grad = function(est) {
c(1 / est[1], -1 / est[2])
}
)
ci_RR <- ci(fit1, contrast = myContrast)
