probcub0q {CUB}R Documentation

Probability distribution of a CUB model with covariates for the feeling component

Description

Compute the probability distribution of a CUB model with covariates for the feeling component.

Usage

probcub0q(m,ordinal,W,pai,gama)

Arguments

m

Number of ordinal categories

ordinal

Vector of ordinal responses

W

Matrix of covariates for explaining the feeling component NCOL(Y)+1 to include an intercept term in the model (first entry)

pai

Uncertainty parameter

gama

Vector of parameters for the feeling component, whose length equals NCOL(W)+1 to include an intercept term in the model (first entry)

Value

A vector of the same length as ordinal, whose i-th component is the probability of the i-th observation according to a CUB distribution with the corresponding values of the covariates for the feeling component and coefficients specified in gama.
