Description

Extract random effects estimates from an mjoint object.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'mjoint'
ranef(object, postVar = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

object

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

postVar

logical: if TRUE the variance of the posterior distribution is also returned.

...

additional arguments; currently none are used.

Value

A data.frame (also of class ranef.mjoint) with rows denoting the individuals and columns the random effects (e.g., intercepts, slopes, etc.). If postVar=TRUE, the numeric matrix has an extra attribute, postVar.
