binfit: Scalar Measures of Fit for Binary Variable Models

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Calculates scalar measures of fit for models with binary dependent variables along the lines described in Long (1997) and Long and Freese (2005).

Usage

1
	binfit(mod)

Arguments

mod

A model of class glm with family=binomial.

Details

binfit calculates scalar measures of fit (many of which are pseudo-R-squared measures) to describe how well a model fits data with a binary dependent variable.

Value

A named vector of scalar measures of fit
