Computes different overall measures of multicollinearity diagnostics for matrix of regressors. Overall measures of collinearity detection includes Determinant of the correlation matrix (Cooley and Lohnes, 1971), Farrar test of chi-square for presence of multicollinearity (Farrar and Glauber, 1967), Red Indicator (Kovacs et al., 2015) <doi: 10.1111/j.1751-5823.2005.tb00156.x>, Sum of lambda inverse Chatterjee and Price (1977) values, Theil's indicator (Theil, 1971) and condition number (Belsley et al., 1980) <doi: 10.1007/BF00426854> with or without intercept term.

1 2 |

`mod ` |
A model object, not necessarily type |

`na.rm ` |
Whether to remove missing observations. |

`Inter ` |
Whether to include or exclude Intercept term, by default |

`detr ` |
Determinant default threshold, |

`red ` |
red indicator default threshold, |

`conf ` |
confidence level of Farrar Chi-Square test, |

`theil ` |
Theil's indicator default threshold, |

`cn ` |
condition number default threshold, |

`... ` |
Extra argument(s) if used will be ignored. |

This function detects the existence of multicollinearity by using different available diagnostic measures already available in literature such as Determinant of correlation matrix, Farrar test of chi-square, Red Indicator, Sum of lambda inverse values, Theil's Indicator and Condition Number.

Function also displays diagnostic measures value with the decision of either multicollinearity is detected by the diagnostics or not. The Value of 1 indicate that multicollinearity is detected and 0 indicate measure could not detect by the certain diagnostic measure. A list object of class "omc" is returned:

`odiags` |
Listing of all overall diagnostic measures. |

`Inter` |
logical, if |

`x` |
matrix of regressors. |

`call` |
The matched call. |

Missing values in data will be removed by default. There is no method for the detection of multicollinearity, if missing values exists in the data set.
