rsquare: Pseudo-R2 In TheoreticalEcosystemEcology/alien: Comparative analysis of interaction inference methods

Description

Calculates Efron's pseudo-R2 for alienFit objects

Usage

 1 rsquare(alienFit) 

Arguments

 alienFit An object of class alienFit.

Details

Efron's pseudo-R2 is calculated as:

R^2 = 1 - \frac{(y_i-\hat{π})^2}{(y_i-\bar{y})^2}{R2=1-((y-pihat)^2)/((y-ybar)^2)}

.

where pihat is the model predicted values calculated on the scale of the response variable.

This version of pseudo-R2 was chosen over the others because it can be calculated for all types of models implemented in this package.
