firstYearInNewRegime {BALD}R Documentation

A generic function to plot and/or return the posterior change point.

Description

A generic function to plot and/or return the posterior change point.

Arguments

object

The object from which to plot and/or return the posterior change point estimate.

plot

A logical value. If TRUE, the plot is generated and the statistics are returned; otherwise only the statistics are returned.

Details

When incorporating a structural break, the user has the option of specifying either 1) the first year in which the new regime applies or 2) a (inclusive) range in which the first year in the new regime applies. If the user specifies a range, the actual year is estimated as a model parameter. This function allows for the retrieval/illustration of the posterior for this estimate. See vignette('BALD').

Value

Mainly called for the side effect of plotting.
