ceiling effects, floor effects, or both (indicated by the |

`predict.ictreg`

produces a summary of the results from an
`ictreg`

object. It displays the coefficients, standard errors, and fit
statistics for any model from `ictreg`

.

`predict.ictreg`

also produces estimates of the conditional probability
of lying and of the population proportion of liars for boundary models from
`ictreg()`

if `ceiling = TRUE`

or `floor = TRUE`

.

The conditional probability of lying for the ceiling model is the probability that a respondent with true affirmative views of all the sensitive and non-sensitive items lies and responds negatively to the sensitive item. The conditional probability for the floor model is the probability that a respondent lies to conceal her true affirmative views of the sensitive item when she also holds true negative views of all the non-sensitive items. In both cases, the respondent may believe her privacy is not protected, so may conceal her true affirmative views of the sensitive item.
