Multiply imputed repeated analyses (mira)
mira object is generated by the
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
vcov() methods are available for
fitted object. The
mira class of objects has methods for the
following generic functions:
Object of class
"list"containing the following slots:
The call that created the object.
The call that created the
midsobject that was used in
An array containing the number of missing observations per column.
A list of
mcomponents containing the individual fit objects from each of the
mcomplete 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".
