testUniformity {DHARMa}R Documentation

Test for overall uniformity

Description

This function tests the overall uniformity of the simulated residuals in a DHARMa object

Usage

testUniformity(simulationOutput, alternative = c("two.sided", "less",
  "greater"), plot = T)

Arguments

simulationOutput

an object of class DHARMa, either created via simulateResiduals for supported models or by createDHARMa for simulations created outside DHARMa, or a supported model. Providing a supported model directly is discouraged, because simulation settings cannot be changed in this case.

alternative

a character string specifying whether the test should test if observations are "greater", "less" or "two.sided" compared to the simulated null hypothesis. See ks.test for details

plot

if T, plots calls plotQQunif as well

Details

The function applies a ks.test for uniformity on the simulated residuals.

Examples

testData = createData(sampleSize = 100, overdispersion = 0.5, randomEffectVariance = 0)
fittedModel <- glm(observedResponse ~ Environment1 , family = "poisson", data = testData)
simulationOutput <- simulateResiduals(fittedModel = fittedModel)

# the plot function runs 4 tests
# i) KS test i) Dispersion test iii) Outlier test iv) quantile test
plot(simulationOutput, quantreg = TRUE)

# testResiduals tests distribution, dispersion and outliers
# testResiduals(simulationOutput)

####### Individual tests #######

# KS test for correct distribution of residuals
testUniformity(simulationOutput)

# KS test for correct distribution within and between groups
testCategorical(simulationOutput, testData$group)

# Dispersion test - for details see ?testDispersion
testDispersion(simulationOutput) # tests under and overdispersion

# Outlier test (number of observations outside simulation envelope)
# Use type = "boostrap" for exact values, see ?testOutliers
testOutliers(simulationOutput, type = "binomial")

# testing zero inflation
testZeroInflation(simulationOutput)

# testing generic summaries
countOnes <- function(x) sum(x == 1)  # testing for number of 1s
testGeneric(simulationOutput, summary = countOnes) # 1-inflation
testGeneric(simulationOutput, summary = countOnes, alternative = "less") # 1-deficit

means <- function(x) mean(x) # testing if mean prediction fits
testGeneric(simulationOutput, summary = means)

spread <- function(x) sd(x) # testing if mean sd fits
testGeneric(simulationOutput, summary = spread)
