AICcR Documentation

Corrected Akaike's Information Criterion and Bayesian Information Criterion

Description

This function extracts AICc / BICc from models. It can be applied to wide variety of models that use logLik() and nobs() methods (including the popular lm, forecast, smooth classes).

Usage

AICc(object, ...)

BICc(object, ...)

Arguments

object

Time series model.

...

Some stuff.

Details

AICc was proposed by Nariaki Sugiura in 1978 and is used on small samples for the models with normally distributed residuals. BICc was derived in McQuarrie (1999) and is used in similar circumstances.

IMPORTANT NOTE: both of the criteria can only be used for univariate models (regression models, ARIMA, ETS etc) with normally distributed residuals! In case of multivariate models, both criteria need to be modified. See Bedrick & Tsai (1994) for details.

Value

This function returns numeric value.
