# simCostData

From ccostr v0.1.0
by Lars Boerty

##### 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

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
# The simulated data can be used to show how the estimators perform
simCostData(n = 100, dist = "unif", censor = "light", cdist = "exp", L = 10)
# }
```
