parcorHijk: Generalized partial correlation coefficients between Xi and...

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

Description

This function uses data on two column vectors, xi, xj, and a third set xk, which can be a vector or a matrix. xk usually has the remaining variables in the model, including control variables, if any. This function first removes missing data from all input variables. Then, it computes residuals of OLS (no kernel) regression (xi on xk) and (xj on xk). This hybrid version uses both OLS and then generalized correlation among OLS residuals. This solves the potential problem of having too little information content in kernel regression residuals, since kernel fits are sometimes too close, especially when there are many variables in xk.

Generalized partial correlation Xi with Xj (=cause) after removing xk

ouji

Generalized partial correlation Xj with Xi (=cause) after removing xk

allowing for control variables.
