Description

Robust rank-based prediction algorithm that gets predictions for random errors in three-level nested design. It needs one location and scale estimators. Hodges-Lehmann location estimate and dispersion functional estimate pair is called with rprpair="hl-disp" -by default- ; median and MAD pair is called with rprpair="med-mad" in rlme().

Usage

1
rprmeddis(I, sec, mat, ehat, location, scale, rprpair = "hl-disp")

Arguments

I

Number of clusters.

sec

A vector of subcluster numbers in clusters.

mat

A matrix of numbers of observations in subclusters. Dimension is Ixmax(number ofsubclusters). Each row indicates one cluster.

ehat

The residuals that inherits random effects and error effect to be predicted.

location

If location = scale = 1 then use Median and MAD in RPP If location = scale = 2 then use HL & Dispvar in RPP Note: this is deprecated. You should specify the location & scale parameters by using the rprpair parameter.

scale

1 means mad, 2 means disp as scale estimators

rprpair

Character string indicating the location and scale parameters to use. Default to "hl-disp", but may also be "med-mad". See Bilgic (2012).

Details

The rprmeddisp() function yields predictions of random effects and errors vectors along with scale estimates in each level. This function was designed for three-level nested design. See rprmeddisp2() in the package, this is for two-level nested design.
