ci_f_ncp: Confidence Interval for the Non-Centrality Parameter of the F...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References See Also Examples

View source: R/ci_f_ncp.R

Description

Based on the inversion principle, parametric confidence intervals for the non-centrality parameter Delta of the F distribution are calculated. Note that we do not provide bootstrap confidence intervals here to keep the input interface simple. A positive lower (1-alpha)*100%-confidence limit for the ncp goes hand-in-hand with a significant F test at level alpha.

Usage

1
ci_f_ncp(x, df1 = NULL, df2 = NULL, probs = c(0.025, 0.975))

Arguments

x

The result of lm or the F test statistic.

df1

The numerator degree of freedom, e.g. the number of parameters (including the intercept) of a linear regression. Only used if x is a test statistic.

df2

The denominator degree of freedom, e.g. n - df1 - 1 in a linear regression. Only used if x is a test statistic.

probs

Error probabilites. The default c(0.025, 0.975) gives a symmetric 95% confidence interval.

Details

Note that, according to ?pf, the results might be unreliable for very large F values.

Value

A list with class cint containing these components:
