Description

Extract the log-likelihood value(s) from stochastic frontier models returned by frontier.

Usage

2
## S3 method for class 'frontier'
logLik( object, which = "mle", newParam = NULL, ... )

Arguments

object

an object of class frontier (returned by the function frontier).

which

character string. Which log-likelihood value should be returned? 'ols' for the log-likelihood value of the parameters estimated by OLS, 'grid' for the log-likelihood value of the parameters obtained by the grid search (only if no starting values were provided), 'start' for the log-likelihood value of the starting values of the parameters specified by the user (only if starting values were provided), or 'mle' for the log-likelihood values of the parameters estimated by Maximum Likelihood.

newParam

optional vector of parameters. If this argument is provided by the user, the log-likelihood value of the model object is calculated with these (new) parameters.

...

currently unused.

Value

logLik.frontier returns an object of class logLik, which is a numeric scalar (the log-likelihood value) with 2 attributes: nobs (total number of observations in all equations) and df (number of free parameters, i.e. length of the coefficient vector).
