Print Objects of Class "estimate"

Share:

Description

Formats and prints the results of EnvStats functions that estimate the parameters or quantiles of a probability distribution and optionally construct confidence, prediction, or tolerance intervals based on a sample of data assumed to come from that distribution. This method is automatically called by print when given an object of class "estimate".

See the help files Estimating Distribution Parameters and Estimating Distribution Quantiles for lists of functions that estimate distribution parameters and quantiles. See the help files Prediction Intervals and Tolerance Intervals for lists of functions that create prediction and tolerance intervals.

## S3 method for class 'estimate'
print(x, conf.cov.sig.digits = .Options$digits, 
  limits.sig.digits = .Options$digits, ...) 

Arguments

x

an object of class "estimate". See estimate.object for details.

conf.cov.sig.digits

numeric scalar indicating the number of significant digits to print for the confidence level or coverage of a confidence, prediction, or tolerance interval.

limits.sig.digits

numeric scalar indicating the number of significant digits to print for the upper and lower limits of a confidence, prediction, or tolerance interval.

...

arguments that can be supplied to the format function.

Details

This is the "estimate" method for the generic function print. Prints estimated parameters and, if present in the object, information regarding confidence, prediction, or tolerance intervals.

Value

Invisibly returns the input x.
