cens.d: Censored Probability Density Function of a gamlss.family...

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


Creates a probability density function from a current gamlss.family distribution to be used for fitting a censored or interval response variable.


cens.d(family = "NO", type = c("right", "left", "interval"), ...)



a gamlss.family object, which is used to define the distribution and the link functions of the various parameters. The distribution families supported by gamlss() can be found in gamlss.family and in the package gamlss.dist.


whether right, left or in interval censoring is required, (right is the default)


for extra arguments


This function is used to calculate the likelihood function for censored data. This function is not supposed to be used on its own but it is used in function gen.cens.


Returns a modified d family function. The argument of the original function d function are the same.


For an example see gen.cens()
