Table 4 Evaluation criteria for parameter estimations across replicate data sets. \(\Theta \in \mathbb {R}\) denotes the true value of the parameter of interest, \(\hat {\Theta } \in \mathbb {R}^{m}\) the parameter estimations for the m replicate data sets

From: Analysis of contamination in cluster randomized trials of malaria interventions

Evaluation criteria Abbreviation Formula
Relative bias relBias \((\mathrm {E}[\hat {\Theta }] - \Theta)/\Theta \)
Empirical standard error EmpSE \(\text {Var}[\hat {\Theta }]^{1/2}\)
Width of 95%CI Width Average width of 95%CI
Coverage probability CP Proportion of 95%CI that contained Θ
