gesttools: General Purpose G-Estimation for End of Study or Time-Varying Outcomes

Provides a series of general purpose tools to perform g-estimation using the methods described in Sjolander and Vansteelandt (2016) <doi:10.1515/em-2015-0005> and Dukes and Vansteelandt <doi:10.1093/aje/kwx347>. The package allows for g-estimation in a wide variety of circumstances, including an end of study or time-varying outcome, and an exposure that is a binary, continuous, or a categorical variable with three or more categories. The package also supports g-estimation with time-varying causal effects and effect modification by a confounding variable.
