Description

Takes a fitted spm object produced by spm() and obtains predictions at new data values.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'spm'
predict(object,newdata,se,...)

Arguments

object

a fitted spm object as produced by spm().

newdata

a data frame containing the values of the predictors at which predictions are required. The columns should have the same name as the predictors.

se

when this is TRUE standard error estimates are returned for each prediction. The default is FALSE.

...

other arguments.

Details

Takes a fitted spm object produced by spm() and obtains predictions at new data values as specified by the ‘newdata’ argument. If ‘se=TRUE’ then standard error estimates are also obtained.

Value

If se=FALSE then a vector of predictions at ‘newdata’ is returned. If se=TRUE then a list with components named ‘fit’ and ‘se’ is returned. The ‘fit’ component contains the predictions. The ‘se’ component contains standard error estimates.
