model 
the name of a statistical model to estimate. For a list of other supported models and their documentation see: http://docs.zeligproject.org/articles/.

cite 
If is set to 'TRUE' (default), the model citation will be printed to the console. 
below: 
point at which the dependent variable is censored from below. If the dependent variable is only censored from above, set below = Inf. The default value is 0. 
above: 
point at which the dependent variable is censored from above. If the dependent variable is only censored from below, set above = Inf. The default value is Inf. 
Additional parameters avaialable to this model include:
weights
: vector of weight values or a name of a variable in the dataset
by which to weight the model. For more information see:
http://docs.zeligproject.org/articles/weights.html.
burnin
: number of the initial MCMC iterations to be discarded (defaults to 1,000).
mcmc
: number of the MCMC iterations after burnin (defaults to 10,000).
thin
: thinning interval for the Markov chain. Only every thinth
draw from the Markov chain is kept. The value of mcmc must be divisible by this value.
The default value is 1.
verbose
: defaults to FALSE. If TRUE, the progress of the sampler (every 10%)
is printed to the screen.
seed
: seed for the random number generator. The default is NA
which
corresponds to a random seed of 12345.
beta.start
: starting values for the Markov chain, either a scalar or
vector with length equal to the number of estimated coefficients. The default is
NA
, such that the maximum likelihood estimates are used as the starting values.
Use the following parameters to specify the model's priors:
b0
: prior mean for the coefficients, either a numeric vector or a scalar.
If a scalar value, that value will be the prior mean for all the coefficients.
The default is 0.
B0
: prior precision parameter for the coefficients, either a square matrix
(with the dimensions equal to the number of the coefficients) or a scalar.
If a scalar value, that value times an identity matrix will be the prior precision parameter.
The default is 0, which leads to an improper prior.
c0
: c0
/2 is the shape parameter for the Inverse Gamma prior on the variance of the
disturbance terms.
d0
: d0
/2 is the scale parameter for the Inverse Gamma prior on the variance of the
disturbance terms.
Depending on the class of model selected, zelig
will return
an object with elements including coefficients
, residuals
,
and formula
which may be summarized using
summary(z.out)
or individually extracted using, for example,
coef(z.out)
. See
http://docs.zeligproject.org/articles/getters.html for a list of
functions to extract model components. You can also extract whole fitted
model objects using from_zelig_model
.
