BIFIE.logistreg {BIFIEsurvey}R Documentation

Logistic Regression

Description

Computes logistic regression. Explained variance R^2 is computed by the approach of McKelvey and Zavoina.

Usage

BIFIE.logistreg(BIFIEobj, dep=NULL, pre=NULL, formula=NULL,
    group=NULL, group_values=NULL, se=TRUE, eps=1E-8, maxiter=100)

## S3 method for class 'BIFIE.logistreg'
summary(object,digits=4,...)

## S3 method for class 'BIFIE.logistreg'
coef(object,...)

## S3 method for class 'BIFIE.logistreg'
vcov(object,...)

Arguments

BIFIEobj

Object of class BIFIEdata

dep

String for the dependent variable in the regression model

pre

Vector of predictor variables. If the intercept should be included, then use the variable one for specifying it (see Examples).

formula

An R formula object which can be applied instead of providing dep and pre. Note that there is additional computation time needed for model matrix creation.

group

Optional grouping variable(s)

group_values

Optional vector of grouping values. This can be omitted and grouping values will be determined automatically.

se

Optional logical indicating whether statistical inference based on replication should be employed.

eps

Convergence criterion for parameters

maxiter

Maximum number of iterations

object

Object of class BIFIE.logistreg

digits

Number of digits for rounding output

...

Further arguments to be passed

Value

A list with following entries

stat

Data frame with regression coefficients

output

Extensive output with all replicated statistics

...
