Description

Return an estimator on a different scale

Usage

1
scale_est(obs_est = NULL, grad = NULL, scale = "identity")

Arguments

obs_est

the observed VIM estimate

grad

the estimated efficient influence function

scale

the scale to compute on

Details

It may be of interest to return an estimate (or confidence interval) on a different scale than originally measured. For example, computing a confidence interval (CI) for a VIM value that lies in (0,1) on the logit scale ensures that the CI also lies in (0, 1).

Value

the scaled estimate
