## S3 method for class 'pdata.frame'
model.frame(
  formula,
  data = NULL,
  ...,

  rhs = NULL,
  dot = "previous"
)

## S3 method for class 'pdata.frame'
formula(x, ...)

## S3 method for class 'plm'
model.matrix(object, ...)

## S3 method for class 'pdata.frame'
model.matrix(
  object,
  model = c("pooling", "within", "Between", "Sum", "between", "mean", "random", "fd"),
  effect = c("individual", "time", "twoways", "nested"),
  rhs = 1,

Arguments

data

a formula, see Details,

...

further arguments.

lhs

inherited from package Formula::Formula() (see there),

rhs

inherited from package Formula::Formula() (see there),

dot

inherited from package Formula::Formula() (see there),

x

a model.frame

object, formula

an object of class "pdata.frame" or an estimated model object of class "plm",

model

one of "pooling", "within", "Sum", "Between", "between", "random", "fd" and "ht",

effect

the effects introduced in the model, one of "individual", "time", "twoways" or "nested",

theta

the parameter for the transformation if model = "random",

cstcovar.rm

remove the constant columns, one of "none", "intercept", "covariates", "all"),

Details

The lhs and rhs arguments are inherited from Formula, see there for more details.
The model.frame methods return a pdata.frame object suitable as an input to plm's model.matrix.
The model.matrix methods builds a model matrix with transformations performed as specified by the model and effect arguments (and theta if model = "random" is requested), in this case the supplied data argument should be a model frame created by plm's model.frame method. If not, it is tried to construct the model frame from the data. Constructing the model frame first ensures proper NA handling, see Examples.

Value

The model.frame methods return a pdata.frame.
The model.matrix methods return a matrix.

# First, make a pdata.frame
data("Grunfeld", package = "plm")
pGrunfeld <- pdata.frame(Grunfeld)

# then make a model frame from a pFormula and a pdata.frame
form <- inv ~ value
mf <- model.frame(pGrunfeld, form)

# then construct the (transformed) model matrix (design matrix)
# from formula and model frame
modmat <- model.matrix(mf, model = "within")

## retrieve model frame and model matrix from an estimated plm object
fe_model <- plm(form, data = pGrunfeld, model = "within")
model.frame(fe_model)
model.matrix(fe_model)

# same as constructed before
all.equal(mf, model.frame(fe_model), check.attributes = FALSE) # TRUE
all.equal(modmat, model.matrix(fe_model), check.attributes = FALSE) # TRUE
