 confint.svyglm R Documentation

## Confidence intervals for regression parameters

### Description

Computes confidence intervals for regression parameters in `svyglm` objects. The default is a Wald-type confidence interval, adding and subtracting a multiple of the standard error. The `method="likelihood"` is an interval based on inverting the Rao-Scott likelihood ratio test. That is, it is an interval where the working model deviance is lower than the threshold for the Rao-Scott test at the specified level.

### Usage

``````## S3 method for class 'svyglm'
confint(object, parm, level = 0.95, method = c("Wald", "likelihood"), ddf = NULL, ...)
``````

### Arguments

 `object` `svyglm` object `parm` numeric or character vector indicating which parameters to construct intervals for. `level` desired coverage `method` See description above `ddf` Denominator degrees of freedom for `"likelihood"` method, to use a t distribution rather than norma. If `NULL`, use `object\$df.residual` `...` for future expansion

### Value

A matrix of confidence intervals
