invlogit {arm} R Documentation

## Logistic and Inverse logistic functions

### Description

Inverse-logit function, transforms continuous values to the range (0, 1)

### Usage

```logit(x)
invlogit(x)
```

### Arguments

 `x` A vector of continuous values

### Details

The Inverse-logit function defined as: logit^-1(x) = e^x/(1+e^x) transforms continuous values to the range (0, 1), which is necessary, since probabilities must be between 0 and 1 and maps from the linear predictor to the probabilities

### Value

A vector of estimated probabilities

### Examples

``` data(frisk)
n <- 100
x1 <- rnorm (n)
x2 <- rbinom (n, 1, .5)
b0 <- 1
b1 <- 1.5
b2 <- 2
Inv.logit <- invlogit(b0+b1*x1+b2*x2)
plot(b0+b1*x1+b2*x2, Inv.logit)
```
