dr.pvalue {dr} R Documentation

## Compute the Chi-square approximations to a weighted sum of Chi-square(1) random variables.

### Description

Returns an approximate quantile for a weighted sum of independent χ^2(1) random variables.

### Usage

```dr.pvalue(coef,f,chi2approx=c("bx","wood"),...)

bentlerxie.pvalue(coef, f)

wood.pvalue(coef, f, tol=0.0, print=FALSE)
```

### Arguments

 `coef` a vector of nonnegative weights `f` Observed value of the statistic `chi2approx` Which approximation should be used? `tol` tolerance for Wood's method. `print` Printed output for Wood's method `...` Arguments passed from `dr.pvalue` to wood.pvalue.

### Details

For Bentler-Xie, we approximate f by c χ^2(d) for values of c and d computed by the function. The Wood approximation is more complicated.

### Value

Returns a data.frame with four named components:

 `test` The input argument `f`. `test.adj` For Bentler-Xie, returns cf; for Wood, returns `NA`. `df.adj` For Bentler-Xie, returns d; for Wood, returns `NA`. `pval.adj` Approximate p.value.
