Description

Extract fixed effects estimates from an mjoint object.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'mjoint'
fixef(object, process = c("Longitudinal", "Event"), ...)

Arguments

object

an object inheriting from class mjoint for a joint model of time-to-event and multivariate longitudinal data.

process

character string: if process='Longitudinal' the fixed effects coefficients from the (multivariate) longitudinal sub-model are returned. Else, if process='Event', the coefficients from the time-to-event sub-model are returned.

...

additional arguments; currently none are used.

Value

A named vector of length equal to the number of sub-model coefficients estimated.
