zs: Standardisation functions for models

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/some_helper_functions.R

Description

These functions are for use in fitting linear models (or allies) with scaled predictors, in such a way that when the fitted model objects are used for prediction (or visualisation) the same scaling parameters will be used with the new data.
