Pseudo R2 Statistics

The goodness of fit of the logistic regression model can be expressed by some variants of pseudo R squared statistics, most of which being based on the deviance of the model.

Keywords
model
Usage
PseudoR2(x, which = NULL)
Arguments
x
the glm, polr or multinom model object to be evaluated.
which
character, one out of "McFadden","AldrichNelson", "McFaddenAdj", "Nagelkerke", "CoxSnell", "Effron", "McKelveyZavoina", "Tjur", "all". Partial matching is supported.
Details

Cox and Snell's $R^2$ is based on the log likelihood for the model compared to the log likelihood for a baseline model. However, with categorical outcomes, it has a theoretical maximum value of less than 1, even for a "perfect" model.

Nagelkerke's $R^2$ is an adjusted version of the Cox and Snell's $R^2$ that adjusts the scale of the statistic to cover the full range from 0 to 1.

McFadden's $R^2$ is another version, based on the log-likelihood kernels for the intercept-only model and the full estimated model.

Value

AIC, LogLik, LogLikNull and G2 will only be reported with option "all".
