Calling
summary(mdmr.res)
produces a data frame comprised of:
Statistic |
Value of the corresponding MDMR test statistic |
Pseudo R2 |
Size of the corresponding effect on the distance matrix |
p-value |
The p-value for each effect. |
In addition to the information in the three columns comprising
summary(res)
, the res
object also contains:
p.prec |
A data.frame reporting the precision of each p-value. If
analytic p-values were computed, these are the maximum error bound of the
p-values reported by the |
lambda |
A vector of the eigenvalues of |
nperm |
Number of permutations used. Will read |
Note that the printed output of summary(res)
will truncate p-values
to the smallest trustworthy values, but the object returned by
summary(res)
will contain the p-values as computed. The reason for
this truncation differs for analytic and permutation p-values. For an
analytic p-value, if the error bound of the Davies algorithm is larger than
the p-value, the only conclusion that can be drawn with certainty is that
the p-value is smaller than (or equal to) the error bound. For a permutation
test, the estimated p-value will be zero if no permuted test statistics are
greater than the observed statistic, but the zero p-value is only a product
of the finite number of permutations conduted. The only conclusion that can
be drawn is that the p-value is smaller than 1/nperm
.
