a formula in the same syntax as used by glm

data

an object of mi-class

m

number of completed datasets to average over, which if NULL defaults to the number of chains used in mi

FUN

Function to estimate models or NULL which uses the same function as used in the fit_model-methods for the dependent variable

...
