Visualizing the result of mctp

Description

This function takes an object of class "mctp" and creates a plot of the confidence intervals for the estimated effects.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'mctp'
plot(x,...)

Arguments

x

An object of class "mctp", i.e. the result when applying mctp to a dataset. Otherwise an error will occur.

...

Arguments to be passed to methods.

Details

It is not possible to change any parameter set in the mctp-statement.

Since plot.mctp is a S3 method it suffices to use plot(x) as long as x is of class "mctp". It will be interpreted as plot.mctp(x).

Value

plot.mctp returns a graph that contains a confidence interval for the estimated effect of each contrast. It just visualizes the result of the mctp-statement.

Note

It is possible to create a graphical result of the multiple comparison test procedure directly by setting plot.simci=TRUE in the mctp-statement.

To get a complete result summary of mctp the function summary.mctp can be used.
