effectsplot: Effects Displays for Concomitant Variables in Finite Mixture...

Description Usage Arguments Details References See Also Examples

Description

Generic function for visualizing the effects of concomitant variables in finite mixture models.

Usage

1
effectsplot(object, ...)

Arguments

object

Fitted model object.

...

Arguments passed to plot.eff, plot.efflist, or plot.effpoly.

Details

effectsplot is set up to be both an S3 and S4 generic. The idea is that it provides the glue needed to extract the concomitant part from a mixture model: First, the concomitant model is refitted as a multinom object or glm object (in case of a mixture with two components). Second, effect or allEffects from the effects package is called to extract the effects of the concomitants. Third, the corresponding plot methods from the effects package create the display.

Currently, this is implemented for raschmix, btmix, and mptmix objects. The interface is not yet fully tested and may change in future versions.

gp <- subset(GermanParties2009, education != "1")
gp$education <- factor(gp$education)

## fit Bradley-Terry mixture, see ?btmix for more details

## inspect mixture and effects

## vis effects package directly
