loglikCUBE {CUB}R Documentation

Log-likelihood function for CUBE models

Description

Compute the log-likelihood function for CUBE models. It is possible to include covariates in the model for explaining the feeling component or all the three parameters.

Usage

loglikCUBE(ordinal,m,param,Y=0,W=0,Z=0)

Arguments

ordinal

Vector of ordinal responses

m

Number of ordinal categories

param

Vector of parameters for the specified CUBE model

Y

Matrix of selected covariates to explain the uncertainty component (default: no covariate is included in the model)

W

Matrix of selected covariates to explain the feeling component (default: no covariate is included in the model)

Z

Matrix of selected covariates to explain the overdispersion component (default: no covariate is included in the model)

Details

If no covariate is included in the model, then param has the form (π,ξ,φ). More generally, it has the form (\bold{β,γ,α)} where, respectively, \bold{β},\bold{γ}, \bold{α} are the vectors of coefficients explaining the uncertainty, the feeling and the overdispersion components, with length NCOL(Y)+1, NCOL(W)+1, NCOL(Z)+1 to account for an intercept term in the first entry. No missing value should be present neither for ordinal nor for covariate matrices: thus, deletion or imputation procedures should be preliminarily run.
