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.
