Overall concordance correlation coefficient (OCCC)

Description

Overall concordance correlation coefficient (OCCC) for agreement on a continuous measure based on Lin (1989, 2000) and Barnhart et al. (2002).

Usage

epi.occc(dat, na.rm = FALSE, pairs = FALSE)

## S3 method for class 'epi.occc'
print(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'epi.occc'
summary(object, ...)

Arguments

dat

a matrix, or a matrix like object. Rows correspond to cases/observations, columns corresponds to raters/variables.

na.rm

logical. Should missing values (including NaN) be removed?

pairs

logical. Should the return object contain pairwise statistics? See Details.

x, object

an object of class epi.occc.

...

further arguments passed to print methods.

Details

The index proposed by Barnhart et al. (2002) is the same as the index suggested by Lin (1989) in the section of future studies with a correction of a typographical error in Lin (2000).

Value

An object of class epi.occc with the following list elements (notation follows Barnhart et al. 2002):

Examples

## EXAMPLE 1:
## Generate some rating data:
set.seed(1234)
p <- runif(n = 10, min = 0, max = 1)
x <- replicate(n = 5, expr = rbinom(n = 10, size = 4, prob = p) + 1)

rval.occc01 <- epi.occc(dat = x, pairs = TRUE)
print(rval.occc01); summary(rval.occc01)
