VGAM (version 1.1-1)

# coefvlm: Extract Model Coefficients

## Description

Extracts the estimated coefficients from VLM objects such as VGLMs.

## Usage

coefvlm(object, matrix.out = FALSE, label = TRUE, colon = FALSE)

## Arguments

object

An object for which the extraction of coefficients is meaningful. This will usually be a vglm object.

matrix.out

Logical. If TRUE then a matrix is returned. The explanatory variables are the rows. The linear/additive predictors are the columns. The constraint matrices are used to compute this matrix.

label

Logical. If FALSE then the names of the vector of coefficients are set to NULL.

colon

Logical. Explanatory variables which appear in more than one linear/additive predictor are labelled with a colon, e.g., age:1, age:2. However, if it only appears in one linear/additive predictor then the :1 is omitted by default. Then setting colon = TRUE will add the :1.

## Value

A vector usually. A matrix if matrix.out = TRUE.

## Details

This function works in a similar way to applying coef() to a lm or glm object. However, for VGLMs, there are more options available.

## Examples

Run this code
# NOT RUN {
zdata <- data.frame(x2 = runif(nn <- 200))
zdata <- transform(zdata, pstr0  = logit(-0.5 + 1*x2, inverse = TRUE),
lambda = loglink(  0.5 + 2*x2, inverse = TRUE))
zdata <- transform(zdata, y2 = rzipois(nn, lambda, pstr0 = pstr0))

fit2 <- vglm(y2 ~ x2, zipoisson(zero = 1), data = zdata, trace = TRUE)
coef(fit2, matrix = TRUE)  # Always a good idea
coef(fit2)
coef(fit2, colon = TRUE)
# }
