bca.cis: Bias-corrected and Accelerated Confidence Intervals

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Computes bootstrap BCa confidence intervals for chosen parameters for PLS models fitted with validation = "oob".

Usage

1
2
bca.cis(object, conf = .95, type = c("coefficients",
        "loadings", "weights"))

Arguments

object

an object of class "mvdareg", i.e. plsFit.

conf

desired confidence level

type

input parameter vector

Details

The function computes the bootstrap BCa confidence intervals for any fitted mvdareg model. Should be used in instances in which there is reason to suspectd the percentile intervals. Results provided across all latent variables (LVs). As such, it may be slow for models with a large number of LVs.

Value

A bca.cis object contains component results for the following:

ncomp

number of components in the model

variables

variable names

boot.mean

mean of the bootstrap

BCa percentiles

confidence intervals

proportional bias

calculated bias

skewness

skewness of the bootstrap distribution

a

acceleration contstant

## Number of bootstraps set to 300 to demonstrate flexibility
## Use a minimum of 1000 (default) for results that support bootstraping
mod1 <- plsFit(log.RAI ~., scale = TRUE, data = Penta[, -1],
               ncomp = 2, validation = "oob", boots = 300)
bca.cis(mod1, conf = .95, type = "coefficients")
## Not run:

## End(Not run)
