## Many score based regressions with muliple response variables and a single predictor variable

### Description

Many score based regressions with muliple response variables and a single predictor variable.

### Usage

mv.score.glms(y, x, oiko = NULL, logged = FALSE)
mv.score.weibregs(y, x, logged = FALSE)
mv.score.betaregs(y, x, logged = FALSE)
mv.score.gammaregs(y, x, logged = FALSE)
mv.score.expregs(y, x, logged = FALSE)
mv.score.invgaussregs(y, x, logged = FALSE)


### Arguments

 y A matrix with either discrete or binary data for the Poisson or binary logistic regression respectively. For the Weibull, gamma, inverse Gaussian and exponential regressions the values of y must be strictly positive data, lifetimes or durations for example. For the beta regression they must be numbers between 0 and 1. x A vector with continuous data, the predictor variable. oiko This can be either "poisson" or "binomial". logged A boolean variable; it will return the logarithm of the pvalue if set to TRUE.

### Details

Instead of maximising the log-likelihood via the Newton-Raphson algorithm in order to perform the hypothesis testing that \beta_i=0 we use the score test. This is dramatcially faster as no model needs to be fitted. The first derivative (score) of the log-likelihood is known and in closed form and under the null hypothesis the fitted values are all equal to the mean of the response variable y. The variance of the score is also known in closed form. The test is not the same as the likelihood ratio test. It is size correct nonetheless but it is a bit less efficient and less powerful. For big sample sizes though (5000 or more) the results are the same. We have seen via simulation studies is that it is size correct to large sample sizes, at elast a few thousands. You can try for yourselves and see that even with 500 the results are pretty close. The score test is pretty faster then the classical log-likelihood ratio test.

### Value

A matrix with two columns, the test statistic and its associated p-value. For the Poisson and logistic regression the p-value is derived via the t distribution, whereas for all other regression models via the \chi^2 distribution.
