`blandPowerCurve.Rd`

This function calculates the power for the Bland-Altman method under varying parameter settings and for a range of sample sizes.

```
blandPowerCurve(
samplesizes = seq(10, 100, 1),
mu = 0,
SD,
delta,
conf.level = 0.95,
agree.level = 0.95
)
```

- samplesizes
vector of samples sizes at which to estimate power.

- mu
mean of differences

- SD
standard deviation of differences

- delta
The threshold below which methods agree/can be considered equivalent, can be in any units. Equivalence Bound for Agreement. More than one delta can be provided.

- conf.level
the confidence level(s) required. Default is 95%. More than one confidence level can be provided.

- agree.level
the agreement level(s) required. Default is 95%. The proportion of data that should lie between the thresholds, for 95% limits of agreement this should be 0.95. More than one confidence level can be provided.

A dataframe is returned containing the power analysis results. The results can then be plotted with the plot.powerCurve function.
