unity | R Documentation |

If the location term in a regression model does not depend on any
previously observed values of the outcome in a longitudinal data set,
then we obtain simplification in our estimation procedure when the
outcomes can be missing. Using the default value of `unity`

for the
argument `modify`

in the `mreg`

function does this.

unity(x, y, mod.Z)

`x` |
is a vector of possible values the previous value of the response could take. |

`y` |
is an vector of the coefficients. Its length is specified in
the |

`mod.Z` |
vector of observed covariates that may interact with the
unobserved preceding outcome corresponding to the observation. It is
taken from the |

This function is the default value for the argument `modify`

for
`mreg`

. It does nothing to the linear predictor term.
For this function `unity`

there are no such covariates.
A default value for `mod.formula`

is `~1`

.

A vector of zeroes the same length is the argument `x`

.
