simCostData

0th

Percentile

Simulates censored cost data

This function can be used to demonstrate the bias and coverage of the estimators in the ccmean function

Usage
simCostData(n = 100, dist = "unif", censor = "light",
  cdist = "exp", L = 10)
Arguments
n

Number of individuals to simulate

dist

Survival distribution either "unif" = unif(0,10) o r "exp" = exp (1/6)

censor

Censoring "light" ~ 25% or "heavy" ~ 40%, changes a bit depending on cdist

cdist

Distribution used to censor, "exp" exponential or "unif" uniform

L

Number of years to summarize over

Details

The function simulates survival times from either an uniform distribution or an exponential distribution, and a cost history. There are two options for censoring, heavy (~40 light (~25

Value

Simulation of censored cost
