This function tests the null hypothesis of j joinpoint(s) versus the alternative of k joinpoint(s) based on the likelihood ratio test statistic. The p-value is determined by a Monte Carlo method.

`j,k` |
pre-specified number of joinpoints in the null and alternative hpyotheses (the smaller is used for the null). |

`y` |
the vector of Binomial responses. |

`n` |
the vector of sizes for the Binomial random variables. |

`tm` |
the vector of ordered observation times. |

`X` |
a design matrix containing other covariates. |

`ofst` |
a vector of known offsets for the logit of the response. |

`R` |
number of Monte Carlo simulations. |

`alpha` |
significance level of the test. |

The re-weighted log-likelihood is the log-likelihood divided by the largest component of n.

`pval` |
The estimate of the p-value via simulation. |

`Coef` |
A table of coefficient estimates. |

`Joinpoint` |
The estimates of the joinpoint, if it is significant. |

`wlik` |
The maximum value of the re-weighted log-likelihood. |
