Accessing Parameter Names

Description

Functions for accessing names of the MCMC parameters, either country-independent or country-specific.

Usage

tfr.parameter.names(trans = NULL, meta = NULL)
tfr.parameter.names.cs(country.code = NULL, trans = NULL, back.trans = TRUE)
tfr.parameter.names.extended()
tfr.parameter.names.cs.extended(country.code = NULL)

tfr3.parameter.names()
tfr3.parameter.names.cs(country.code = NULL)

Arguments

trans

It can be NULL or logical. If TRUE, names of the transformable parameters (i.e. ‘alpha’ in case of country-independent parameters, or ‘gamma’ in case of country-specific parameters) are replaced by the names of the transformed parameters (i.e. ‘alphat’, or ‘gammat’). If trans=FALSE, there is no such replacement. If trans=NULL, all parameter names, including the transformable parameters are returned.

meta

It can be NULL or a bayesTFR.mcmc.meta object. If not NULL and its element ar.phase2 is TRUE (i.e. the simulation considered an additional AR(1) parameter in the estimation), then the names include also ‘phi’.

country.code

Country code. If it is given, the country-specific parameter names contain the postfix ‘_cx’ where x is the country.code.

back.trans

Logical indicating if back-transformable parameter names (i.e. ‘Triangle_c1’, ..., ‘Triangle_c3’) should be returned.

Value

tfr.parameter.names returns names of the country-independent Phase II parameters.
tfr.parameter.names.cs returns names of the country-specific Phase II parameters.
tfr.parameter.names.extended returns names of all country-independent Phase II parameters, including the transformed parameters. Parameters ‘alpha’, ‘delta’, ‘alphat’, and‘deltat’ are in their extended format with the postfix ‘_1’, ‘_2’ and ‘_3’.
tfr.parameter.names.cs.extended returns names of all country-specific Phase II parameters, including the transformed parameters. Parameters ‘gamma’ and‘gammat’ are in their extended format with the postfix ‘_1’, ‘_2’ and ‘_3’.
tfr3.parameter.names returns names of the country-independent Phase III parameters.
tfr3.parameter.names.cs returns names of the country-specific Phase III parameters.
