AB.Ab.aB.abR Documentation

The AB-Ab-aB-ab Blood Group System

Description

Estimates the parameter of the AB-Ab-aB-ab blood group system.

Usage

AB.Ab.aB.ab(link = "logitlink", init.p = NULL)

Arguments

link

Link function applied to p. See Links for more choices.

init.p

Optional initial value for p.

Details

This one parameter model involves a probability called p.

Value

An object of class "vglmff" (see vglmff-class). The object is used by modelling functions such as vglm and vgam.

Note

The input can be a 4-column matrix of counts, where the columns are AB, Ab, aB and ab (in order). Alternatively, the input can be a 4-column matrix of proportions (so each row adds to 1) and the weights argument is used to specify the total number of counts for each row.

Examples

ymat <- cbind(AB=1997, Ab=906, aB=904, ab=32)  # Data from Fisher (1925)
fit <- vglm(ymat ~ 1, AB.Ab.aB.ab(link = "identitylink"), trace = TRUE)
fit <- vglm(ymat ~ 1, AB.Ab.aB.ab, trace = TRUE)
rbind(ymat, sum(ymat)*fitted(fit))
Coef(fit)  # Estimated p
p <- sqrt(4*(fitted(fit)[, 4]))
p*p
summary(fit)
