Diagnostics for Confounding of Time-Varying and Other Joint Exposures

Implements three covariate-balance diagnostics for time-varying confounding and selection-bias in complex longitudinal data, as described in Jackson (2016) and Jackson (2019) . Diagnostic 1 assesses measured confounding/selection-bias, diagnostic 2 assesses exposure-covariate feedback, and diagnostic 3 assesses residual confounding/selection-bias after inverse probability weighting or propensity score stratification. All diagnostics appropriately account for exposure history, can be adapted to assess a particular depth of covariate history, and can be implemented in right-censored data. Balance assessments can be obtained for all times, selected-times, or averaged across person-time. The balance measures are reported as tables or plots. These diagnostics can be applied to the study of multivariate exposures including time-varying exposures, direct effects, interaction, and censoring.
