feglm.nb {alpaca}R Documentation

Efficiently fit negative binomial glm's with high-dimensional k-way fixed effects

Description

feglm.nb can be used to fit negative binomial generalized linear models with many high-dimensional fixed effects (see feglm).

Usage

feglm.nb(
  formula = NULL,
  data = NULL,
  beta.start = NULL,
  eta.start = NULL,
  init.theta = NULL,
  link = c("log", "identity", "sqrt"),
  control = NULL
)

Arguments

formula, data, beta.start, eta.start, control

see feglm.

init.theta

an optional initial value for the theta parameter (see glm.nb).

link

the link function. Must be one of "log", "sqrt", or "identity".

Details

If feglm.nb does not converge this is usually a sign of linear dependence between one or more regressors and a fixed effects category. In this case, you should carefully inspect your model specification.

Value

The function feglm.nb returns a named list of class "feglm".
