Glance at a(n) coeftest object


Glance accepts a model object and returns a tibble::tibble() with exactly one row of model summaries. The summaries are typically goodness of fit measures, p-values for hypothesis tests on residuals, or model convergence information.

Glance never returns information from the original call to the modeling function. This includes the name of the modeling function or any arguments passed to the modeling function.

Glance does not calculate summary measures. Rather, it farms out these computations to appropriate methods and gathers the results together. Sometimes a goodness of fit measure will be undefined. In these cases the measure will be reported as NA.

Glance returns the same number of columns regardless of whether the model matrix is rank-deficient or not. If so, entries in columns that no longer have a well-defined value are filled in with an NA of the appropriate type.


## S3 method for class 'coeftest'
glance(x, ...)



A coeftest object returned from lmtest::coeftest().


Additional arguments. Not used. Needed to match generic signature only. Cautionary note: Misspelled arguments will be absorbed in ..., where they will be ignored. If the misspelled argument has a default value, the default value will be used. For example, if you pass conf.lvel = 0.9, all computation will proceed using conf.level = 0.95. Two exceptions here are:

  • tidy() methods will warn when supplied an exponentiate argument if it will be ignored.

  • augment() methods will warn when supplied a newdata argument if it will be ignored.


A tibble::tibble() with exactly one row and columns:


Adjusted R squared statistic, which is like the R squared statistic except taking degrees of freedom into account.


Akaike's Information Criterion for the model.


Bayesian Information Criterion for the model.


Deviance of the model.


Degrees of freedom used by the model.


Residual degrees of freedom.


The log-likelihood of the model. [stats::logLik()] may be a useful reference.


Number of observations used.


P-value corresponding to the test statistic.


R squared statistic, or the percent of variation explained by the model. Also known as the coefficient of determination.


Estimated standard error of the residuals.


Test statistic.


Because of the way that lmtest::coeftest() retains information about the underlying model object, the returned columns for glance.coeftest() will vary depending on the arguments. Specifically, four columns are returned regardless: "Loglik", "AIC", "BIC", and "nobs". Users can obtain additional columns (e.g. "r.squared", "df") by invoking the "save = TRUE" argument as part of lmtest::coeftest(). See examples.

As an aside, goodness-of-fit measures such as R-squared are unaffected by the presence of heteroskedasticity. For further discussion see, e.g. chapter 8.1 of Wooldridge (2016).
