pifpaf: Potential Impact Fraction and Population Attributable Fraction for Cross-Sectional Data

Uses a generalized method to estimate the Potential Impact Fraction (PIF) and the Population Attributable Fraction (PAF) from cross-sectional data. It creates point-estimates, confidence intervals, and estimates of variance. In addition it generates plots for conducting sensitivity analysis. The estimation method corresponds to Zepeda-Tello, Camacho-García-Formentí, et al. 2017. 'Nonparametric Methods to Estimate the Potential Impact Fraction from Cross-sectional Data'. Unpublished manuscript. This package was developed under funding by Bloomberg Philanthropies.
