joint.ci.bonf {asbio}R Documentation

Calculates joint confidence intervals for parameters in linear models using a Bonferroni procedure.

Description

Creates widened confidence intervals to allow joint consideration of parameter confidence intervals.

Usage


joint.ci.bonf(model, conf = 0.95)

Arguments

model

A linear model created by lm

conf

level of confidence 1 - P(type I error)

Details

As with all Bonferroni-based methods for joint confidence the resulting intervals are exceedingly conservative and thus are prone to type II error.

Value

Returns a dataframe with the upper and lower confidence bounds for each parameter in a linear model.
