regtolint: (Multiple) Linear Regression Tolerance Bounds

Description Usage Arguments Value References See Also Examples

Description

Provides 1-sided or 2-sided (multiple) linear regression tolerance bounds. It is also possible to fit a regression through the origin model.

Usage

1
regtol.int(reg, new.x = NULL, side = 1, alpha = 0.05, P = 0.99) 

Arguments

reg

An object of class lm (i.e., the results from a linear regression routine).

new.x

An optional data frame in which to look for variables with which to predict. If omitted, the fitted values are used.

side

Whether a 1-sided or 2-sided tolerance bound is required (determined by side = 1 or side = 2, respectively).

alpha

The level chosen such that 1-alpha is the confidence level.

P

The proportion of the population to be covered by the tolerance bound(s).

Value

regtol.int returns a data frame with items:

alpha

The specified significance level.

P

The proportion of the population covered by the tolerance bound(s).

y

The value of the response given on the left-hand side of the model in reg.

y.hat

The predicted value of the response for the fitted linear regression model. This data frame is sorted by this value.

1-sided.lower

The 1-sided lower tolerance bound. This is given only if side = 1.

1-sided.upper

The 1-sided upper tolerance bound. This is given only if side = 1.

2-sided.lower

The 2-sided lower tolerance bound. This is given only if side = 2.

2-sided.upper

The 2-sided upper tolerance bound. This is given only if side = 2.
