Creates a plot with the effect estimate on the x-axis and the standard error on the y-axis. The plot is trellised by true effect size. Negative and positive controls are shown as blue dots. The area below the dashed line indicated estimates that are statistically significant different from the true effect size (p < 0.05). The orange area indicates estimates with calibrated p < 0.05.

Arguments

logRr

A numeric vector of effect estimates on the log scale.

seLogRr

The standard error of the log of the effect estimates. Hint: often the standard error = (log(<lower bound 95 percent confidence interval>) - log(<effect estimate>))/qnorm(0.025).

trueLogRr

A vector of the true effect sizes.

legacy

If true, a legacy error model will be fitted, meaning standard deviation is linear on the log scale. If false, standard deviation is assumed to be simply linear.

model

The fitted systematic error model. If not provided, it will be fitted on the provided data.

xLabel

The label on the x-axis: the name of the effect estimate.

title

Optional: the main title for the plot

fileName

Name of the file where the plot should be saved, for example 'plot.png'. See the function ggsave in the ggplot2 package for supported file formats.

Value

A Ggplot object. Use the ggsave function to save to file.

Examples

data <- simulateControls(n = 50 * 3, mean = 0.25, sd = 0.25, trueLogRr = log(c(1, 2, 4))) plotCiCalibrationEffect(data$logRr, data$seLogRr, data$trueLogRr)
