Generate Goodness Of Fit plot from a GERGM object.

Description

Generate Goodness Of Fit plot from a GERGM object.

Usage

1
2
GOF(GERGM_Object, column_names = NULL, modularity_group_memberships = NULL,
  return_GERGM_Object = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

GERGM_Object

The object returned by the estimation procedure using the GERGM function.

column_names

Optional argument allowing the user to specify names for statistics to be plotted.

modularity_group_memberships

Optional numeric vector of node group memberships indexed from 1, which will be used to calculate network modularities.

return_GERGM_Object

Optional argument to return the GERGM Object that was passed in, but now with additional GOF statistics such as modularity included in the '@simulated_statistics_for_GOF' and '@additional_stats' fields

...

Additional Arguments can be passed in. Included for eventual compatibility with XERGM package.

Value

A set of box plots where of simulated network statistics centered at the observed value for those statistics and normalized by their standard deviation. This aids in interpretation as the y-axis can be interpreted as the number of simulated-sample standard deviations above or below the observed statistic. Optionally also returns a GERGM object with updated statistics.
