Description

Objectives that are used in profile.brglm

Usage

1
2
3
penalizedDeviance(fm, X, dispersion = 1)

modifiedScoreStatistic(fm, X, dispersion = 1)

Arguments

fm

the restricted fit.

X

the model matrix of the fit on all parameters.

dispersion

the dispersion parameter.

Details

These objectives follow the specifications for objectives in the profileModel package and are used from profile.brglm.

penalizedDeviance returns a deviance-like value corresponding to a likelihood function penalized by Jeffreys invariant prior. It has been used by Heinze & Schemper (2002) and by Bull et. al. (2002) for the construction of confidence intervals for the bias-reduced estimates in logistic regression. The X argument is the model matrix of the full (not the restricted) fit.

modifiedScoreStatistic mimics RaoScoreStatistic in profileModel, but with the ordinary scores replaced with the modified scores used for bias reduction. The argument X has the same interpretation as for penalizedDeviance.

Value

A scalar.
