Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

This function calculates the bias and the mse for the multinomial mixed effects models
using parametric bootstrap. Three types of multinomial mixed models are considered, with one independent domain random effect in each category of the response variable (Model 1),
with two random effects: the first, with a domain random effect and with independent time and domain random effect (Model 2) and the second, with a domain random effect and with correlated time and domain random effect (Model 3).
See details of the parametric bootstrap procedure in Gonzalez-Manteiga et al. (2008) and in Lopez-Vizcaino et al. (2013)
for the adaptation to these three models. This function uses the output of `modelfit1`

, `modelfit2`

or `modelfit3`

,
depending of the current multinomial mixed model.
