Calculate the variance-covariance matrix for an object of class "chandwich"


vcov method for class "chandwich".


## S3 method for class 'chandwich'
vcov(object, complete = FALSE, adjusted = TRUE, ...)



an object of class "chandwich", a result of a call to adjust_loglik.


A logical scalar. If complete = TRUE then the full variance-covariance matrix is returned, including any fixed using fixed_pars and fixed_at in the call to adjust_loglik. In this instance the corresponding elements of the matrix are NA. Otherwise, the variance-covariance matrix of only the free parameters is returned.

The default is complete = FALSE, which is in sync with coef.chandwich.


A logical scalar. If adjusted = TRUE then the variance-covariance matrix is estimated using a sandwich estimator. Otherwise, the inverse of the observed information at the MLE is used.


Additional optional arguments. At present no optional arguments are used.


The variance-covariance matrix is based on attributes(object)$adjVC for adjusted = TRUE and attributes(object)$VC for adjusted = FALSE. These return the estimate variance-covariance matrix of only the free parameters.


A numeric matrix. The dimensions will be named if names were provided in the call to adjust_loglik.
