Unstratified and stratified Miettinen and Nurminen test in aggregate data level

## Arguments

- n0, n1
The sample size in the control group and experimental group, separately. The length should be the same as the length for

`x0/x1`

and`strata`

.- x0, x1
The number of events in the control group and experimental group, separately. The length should be the same as the length for

`n0/n1`

and`strata`

.- strata
A vector of stratum indication to be used in the analysis. If

`NULL`

or the length of unique values of`strata`

equals to 1, it is unstratified MN analysis. Otherwise, it is stratified MN analysis. The length of`strata`

should be the same as the length for`x0/x1`

and`n0/n1`

.- delta
A numeric value to set the difference of two groups under the null.

- weight
Weighting schema used in stratified MN method. Default is

`"ss"`

:`"equal"`

for equal weighting.`"ss"`

for sample size weighting.`"cmh"`

for Cochran-Mantel-Haenszel's weights.

- test
A character string specifying the side of p-value, must be one of

`"one.sided"`

, or`"two.sided"`

.- bisection
The number of sections in the interval used in bisection method. Default is 100.

- eps
The level of precision. Default is 1e-06.

- alpha
Pre-defined alpha level for two-sided confidence interval.
