rms.pval: P-value for root-mean-square goodness-of-fit test for simple...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/rms.pval.R

Description

Returns the P-value associated with a root-mean-square test.

Usage

1
rms.pval(observed, expected, num_sim= 1000)

Arguments

observed

The observed data

expected

The expected data

num_sim

Number of Monte-Carlo simulations desired. The default is 1,000 simulations.

Details

This function calls on test.rms() to calculate the root-mean-square test statistic before calculating the P-value using Monte-Carlo simulation.

Value

Returns the P-value associated with the root-mean-square test.
