GGOFF Tests for Fractional Regression Models
frm.ggoff is used to test the specification of fractional regression models.
an object containing the results of an
a vector containing the test versions to use. Available options:
a logical value indicating whether a summary table with the test results should be printed.
Arguments to pass to glm, which is used to estimate the model under the alternative hypothesis when

specification of: (i) one-part fractional regression models; (ii) the binary
component of two-part fractional regression models; and (iii) the fractional
component of two-part fractional regression models. When the
version is implemented, it is taken into account the option that was chosen for
computing standard errors in the model under evaluation. For the
a robust version is computed in cases (i) and (iii) and a conventional version in
case (ii). See Ramalho, Ramalho and Murteira (2014) for details on the application of the
GGOFF, GOFF1 and GOOFF2 tests in the fractional regression framework.
frm.ggoff returns a named vector with the test results.
