Censored Cumulative Probability Density Function of a gamlss.family Distribution

Share:

Description

Creates a cumulative density function from a current gamlss.family distribution suitable for censored or interval response variable data.

Usage

1
cens.p(family = "NO", type = c("right", "left", "interval"), ...)

Arguments

family

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.

type

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

...

for extra arguments

Details

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

Value

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

Note

For an example see gen.cens()
