AICc: Corrected Akaike Information Criterion

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also


This generic function calculates the small-sample corrected Akaike information criterion, for one or several fitted model objects for which a log-likelihood value can be obtained, according to the formula -2*log-likelihood + 2*npar*(nobs/(nobs-npar-2)), where npar represents the number of parameters and nobs the number of observations in the fitted model.


AICc(object, ...)



An object of a suitable class for the AICc to be calculated - usually a "logLik" object or an object for which a logLik method exists.


Some methods for this generic function may take additional, optional arguments. At present none do.


Returns a numeric value with the corresponding AICc.
