Add-on package for the R package `mboost`

to calculate p-values and confidence intevals for model parameters. Package currently supports models fitted with Gaussian family including linear, group and spline base-learners.

data = data)
# calculate p-values and intervals for model with
# fixed stopping iteration:
# this is done with only B = 100 samples for
# demonstrative purposes and should be increased
# for actual research questions
res <- iboost(mod1, method = "impsamp", B = 100)
# do the same with crossvalidation
fixFolds <- cv(weights = model.weights(mod1),
type = "kfold", B = 10)
cvr <- cvrisk(mod1, folds = fixFolds, papply = lapply)
modf <- mod1[mstop(cvr)]
# define corresponding refit function
modFun <- function(y){
mod <- mboost_fit(response = y,
blg = blList,
offset = 0,
control = boost_control(mstop = 73))
cvr <- cvrisk(mod, folds = fixFolds, papply = lapply)
return(mod[mstop(cvr)])
}
# this will take a while
(res <- iboost(modf, refit.mboost = modFun, method = "impsamp", B = 1000))
