Also confidence intervals for a single binomial or Poisson rate, and intervals for matched pairs. Includes skewness-corrected asymptotic score ('SCAS') methods, which have been developed in Laud (2017) <doi:10.1002/pst.1813> from Miettinen & Nurminen (1985) <doi:10.1002/sim.4780040211> and Gart & Nam (1988) <doi:10.2307/2531848>. Also includes MOVER methods (Method Of Variance Estimates Recovery) for all contrasts, derived from the Newcombe method but using equal-tailed Jeffreys intervals, and generalised for Bayesian applications incorporating prior information. So-called 'exact' methods for strictly conservative coverage are approximated using continuity corrections. Also includes methods for stratified calculations (e.g. meta-analysis), either assuming fixed effects or incorporating stratum heterogeneity.</p>crantastic.orgtag:crantastic.org,2005:TimelineEvent/643302017-07-08T23:15:17Z2017-07-08T23:15:17Zcrantastic_production tagged ratesci with MetaAnalysis<a href="/users/146">crantastic_production</a> <span class="action">tagged</span> <a href="/packages/ratesci">ratesci</a> with <a href="/task_views/MetaAnalysis">MetaAnalysis</a>crantastic_productiontag:crantastic.org,2005:TimelineEvent/617182017-04-21T14:01:54Z2017-04-21T14:01:54Zratesci was upgraded to version 0.2-0<a href="/packages/ratesci">ratesci</a> was <span class="action">upgraded</span> to version <a href="/packages/ratesci/versions/59032">0.2-0</a><br /><h3>Package description:</h3><p>Computes confidence intervals for the rate (or risk) difference ("RD") or rate ratio (or relative risk, "RR") for binomial proportions or Poisson rates, or for odds ratio ("OR", binomial only).
