getDataset {rpact}R Documentation

Get Dataset

Description

Creates a dataset object and returns it.

Usage

getDataset(..., floatingPointNumbersEnabled = FALSE)

Arguments

...

A data.frame or some data vectors defining the dataset.

floatingPointNumbersEnabled

If TRUE, sample sizes can be specified as floating-point numbers (this make sense, e.g., for theoretical comparisons);
by default floatingPointNumbersEnabled = FALSE, i.e., samples sizes defined as floating-point numbers will be truncated.

Details

The different dataset types DatasetMeans, of DatasetRates, or DatasetSurvival can be created as follows:

Prefix overall[Capital case of first letter of variable name]... for the variable names enables entering the overall results and calculates stagewise statistics.

n can be used in place of samplesizes.

Note that in survival design usually the overall events and logrank test statistics are provided in the output, so
getDataset(overallEvents=, overallLogRanks =, overallAllocationRatios =)
is the usual command for entering survival data. Note also that for overallLogranks also the z scores from a Cox regression can be used.

For multi-arm designs, the index refers to the considered comparison. For example,
getDataset(events1=c(13, 33), logRanks1 = c(1.23, 1.55), events2 = c(16, NA), logRanks2 = c(1.55, NA))
refers to the case where one active arm (1) is considered at both stages whereas active arm 2 was dropped at interim. Number of events and logrank statistics are entered for the corresponding comparison to control (see Examples).

For enrichment designs, the comparison of two samples is provided for an unstratified (sub-population wise) or stratified data input.
For unstratified (sub-population wise) data input the data sets are defined for the sub-populations S1, S2, ..., F, where F refers to the full populations. Use of getDataset(S1 = , S2, ..., F = ) defines the data set to be used in getAnalysisResults (see examples)
For stratified data input the data sets are defined for the strata S1, S12, S2, ..., R, where R refers to the remainder of the strata such that the union of all sets is the full population. Use of getDataset(S1 = , S12 = , S2, ..., R = ) defines the data set to be used in getAnalysisResults (see examples)
For survival data, for enrichment designs the log-rank statistics should be entered as stratified log-rank statistics in order to provide strong control of Type I error rate. For stratified data input, the variables to be specified in getDataset() are events, expectedEvents, varianceEvents, and allocationRatios or overallEvents, overallExpectedEvents, overallVarianceEvents, and overallAllocationRatios. From this, (stratified) log-rank tests are calculated.

Value

Returns a Dataset object. The following generics (R generic functions) are available for this result object:
