)

Arguments

Sigma

The complete covariance matrix to be used to manipulate means: This matrix may be entirely unrestricted or entirely range restricted, as the regression weights estimated from this matrix are expected to be invariant to the effects of selection.

means_i

The complete range-restricted (unrestricted) vector of means to be corrected (selected upon).

means_x_a

The vector of unrestricted (range-restricted) means of selection variables

x_col

The row/column indices of the variables in Sigma that correspond, in order, to the variables in means_x_a

y_col

Optional: The variables in Sigma not listed in x_col that are to be manipuated by the multivariate range-restriction formula.

var_names

Optional vector of names for the variables in Sigma, in order of appearance in the matrix.

Value

A vector of means that has been manipulated by the multivariate range-restriction formula.
