nomprob
takes estimates from the W-NOMINATE model and returns a
matrix of yea choice probabilities. It is used to generate a test
rollcall
object using generateTestData
.
1 |
For items below, m is the number of roll calls, n the number of legislators, and d the number of dimensions.
yea |
m x d matrix of yea locations. |
nay |
m x d matrix of no locations. |
ideal |
n x d matrix of legislator ideal points. |
Beta |
scalar giving beta parameter from W-NOMINATE. Usually set to 15. |
dimweight |
d x 1 vector of dimension weights. Usually set to 0.5. |
normal |
integer, '1' generates data using normal probabilities, any other value generates data using logistic probabilities. |
An n x m matrix of probabilities giving the probability of yea for each of n legislators on each of m votes
