is.zero: Zero Constraint Matrices

Description Usage Arguments Details Value See Also Examples

Description

Returns a logical vector from a test of whether an object such as a matrix or VGLM object corresponds to a 'zero' assumption.

Usage

1
2
is.zero.matrix(object, ...)
is.zero.vglm(object, ...)

Arguments

object

an object such as a coefficient matrix of a vglm object, or a vglm object.

...

additional optional arguments. Currently unused.

Details

These functions test the effect of the zero argument on a vglm object or the coefficient matrix of a vglm object. The latter is obtained by coef(vglmObject, matrix = TRUE).

Value

A vector of logicals, testing whether each linear/additive predictor has the zero argument applied to it. It is TRUE if that linear/additive predictor is intercept-only, i.e., all other regression coefficients are set to zero.

No checking is done for the intercept term at all, i.e., that it was estimated in the first place.

coalminers <- transform(coalminers, Age = (age - 42) / 5)
fit <- vglm(cbind(nBnW,nBW,BnW,BW) ~ Age, binom2.or(zero = NULL), coalminers)
is.zero(fit)
is.zero(coef(fit, matrix = TRUE))
