fluctuateQ {drtmle}R Documentation

fluctuateQ

Description

Function called internally by drtmle to perform simultaneous fluctuation of the initial estimator of Q (i.e., solves both EIF estimating eqn and the new estimating eqn that results from misspecification of g)

Usage

fluctuateQ(
  Y,
  A,
  W,
  DeltaY,
  DeltaA,
  Qn,
  gn,
  grn,
  a_0,
  reduction,
  coefTol = 1000
)

Arguments

Y

The outcome

A

The treatment

W

The covariates

DeltaY

Indicator of missing outcome (assumed to be equal to 0 if missing 1 if observed)

DeltaA

Indicator of missing treatment (assumed to be equal to 0 if missing 1 if observed)

Qn

A list of outcome regression estimates evaluated on observed data

gn

A list of propensity regression estimates evaluated on observed data

grn

A list of reduced-dimension regression estimates evaluated on observed data

a_0

A list of fixed treatment values

reduction

A character indicating what reduced dimension regression was used.

coefTol

A tolerance level on the magnitude of the coefficient that flags the result as potentially the result of numeric instability.
