info.criterion: Computes the Average Value of an Information Criterion

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References

Description

Given a log-likelihood, the number of observations and the number of estimated parameters, the average value of a chosen information criterion is computed. This facilitates comparison of models that are estimated with a different number of observations, e.g. due to different lags.

Usage

1
info.criterion(logl, n=NULL, k=NULL, method=c("sc", "aic", "aicc", "hq"))

Arguments

logl

numeric, the value of the log-likelihood

n

integer, number of observations

k

integer, number of parameters

method

character, either "sc" (default), "aic", "aicc" or "hq"

Details

Contrary to AIC and BIC, info.criterion computes the average criterion value (i.e. division by the number of observations). This facilitates comparison of models that are estimated with a different number of observations, e.g. due to different lags.

Value

a list with elements:

method

type of information criterion

n

number of observations

k

number of parameters

value

the value on the information criterion
