anchors.fitted.cpolr: Conditional and unconditional prediction for censored ordered...

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) References See Also Examples


Conditional and unconditional prediction for censored ordered probit. Unconditional prediction returns the fitted values (predicted probabilities) from the cpolr object. Conditional prediction takes the observed range of the diff-corrected self-response output from anchors and renormalizes the predicted probabilities for each observation.


   ## S3 method for class 'anchors.cpolr'
fitted(object, average = FALSE, unconditional = FALSE, ...)



anchors.cpolr object


a logical value. See values below for more details.


Set to TRUE if you submit an anchors.object AND want the unconditional probabilities returned. One case that you would submit a anchors.rank object is if you did subsetting for the anchors object but not for the cpolr object, and want the intersection of the two objects used for the unconditional probabilities.


required for S3, but any other options will be ignored.


If average = FALSE, a matrix of predicted probabilities with rows corresponding to observations, and columns corresponding to categories.

If average = TRUE, the matrix of predicted probabilities (conditional or unconditional) is summarized to a vector (summed by categories, then renormalized to sum to 1).

If anchors object has been specified, then each observation is renormalized to fall into the range of the diff-corrected self-response for that observation. If there are no ties for a given observation, then that observation is a vector consisting of (k-1) zeros and 1 one. If there are ties, then the predicted probabilities for that observation are renormalized to fall within the diff-corrected range.

If anchors object is omitted, identical to the matrix of predicted probabilities from the cpolr output.
