durbinWatsonTest(model, ...)

dwt(...)

## S3 method for class 'lm'
durbinWatsonTest(model, max.lag=1, simulate=TRUE, reps=1000,
    method=c("resample","normal"),
    alternative=c("two.sided", "positive", "negative"), ...)

## Default S3 method:
durbinWatsonTest(model, max.lag=1, ...)

## S3 method for class 'durbinWatsonTest'
print(x, ...)

Arguments

model

a linear-model object, or a vector of residuals from a linear model.

max.lag

maximum lag to which to compute residual autocorrelations and Durbin-Watson statistics.

simulate

if TRUE p-values will be estimated by bootstrapping.

reps

number of bootstrap replications.

method

bootstrap method: "resample" to resample from the observed residuals; "normal" to sample normally distributed errors with 0 mean and standard deviation equal to the standard error of the regression.

alternative

sign of autocorrelation in alternative hypothesis; specify only if max.lag = 1; if max.lag > 1, then alternative is taken to be "two.sided".

...

arguments to be passed down.

x

durbinWatsonTest object.

Value

Returns an object of type "durbinWatsonTest".

Note

p-values are available only from the lm method.
