Multiply imputed repeated analyses (mira)


The mira object is generated by the with.mids() function. The as.mira() function takes the results of repeated complete-data analysis stored as a list, and turns it into a mira object that can be pooled. Pooling requires that coef() and vcov() methods are available for fitted object. The mira class of objects has methods for the following generic functions: print, summary.




Object of class "list" containing the following slots:


The call that created the object.


The call that created the mids object that was used in call.


An array containing the number of missing observations per column.


A list of m components containing the individual fit objects from each of the m complete data analyses.


Many of the functions of the mice package do not use the S4 class definitions, and instead rely on the S3 list equivalent oldClass(obj) <- "mira".
