OpenVigil - 2x2 contingency table calculator

Version 2016-07-07, ruwen.boehm@pharmakologie.uni-kiel.de
The calculations of the pharmacovigilance measurements of disproportionality have been successfully validated against R/epiR.

A free online statistical calculator for a contingency table that has 2 rows and 2 columns for the two categorial data to be analyzed. This software is especially designed for pharmacovigilance data but might be useful for other data as well.
Capabilities: These measurements of disproportionality are calculated as RRR=DE*N/(D*E), PRR=(DE/D)/(dE/d) and ROR=DE*de/(De*dE). A value of 1 is considered normal background noise. The confidence interval can be estimated using Chi-squared with Yates' correction chisq > 4 or lower bound of the 95% confidence interval (CI) of RRR, PRR or ROR, e.g. for s = sqr( 1/DE + 1/De + 1/dE + 1/de ) for ROR with CI = e ^ ( ln ROR ± 1,96s ).


Fill in at least 4 fields with numbers and hit the button below to calculate the most common measurements of disproportionality used in pharmacovigilance in your 2x2 contingency table.

Optionally, you can adjust these numbers to the real-world situation:
Adjust for disease prevalence
Leave 0 (no adjustment) or enter the prevalence of the event/disease as fraction, e.g., 0.00001 for 1:100,000
Adjust for under-reporting
Leave 0 (no adjustment) or enter estimated fraction of filed reports of non-filed, e.g., 0.01 for 1:100
