Regression Influence Plot

This function creates a “bubble” plot of Studentized residuals versus hat values, with the areas of the circles representing the observations proportional to the value Cook's distance. Vertical reference lines are drawn at twice and three times the average hat value, horizontal reference lines at -2, 0, and 2 on the Studentized-residual scale.

Usage
influencePlot(model, ...)

# S3 method for lm influencePlot(model, scale=10, xlab="Hat-Values", ylab="Studentized Residuals", id=TRUE, ...)

Arguments
model

a linear or generalized-linear model.

scale

a factor to adjust the size of the circles.

xlab, ylab

axis labels.

id

settings for labelling points; see link{showLabels} for details. To omit point labelling, set id=FALSE; the default, id=TRUE is equivalent to id=list(method="noteworthy", n=2, cex=1, col=carPalette()[1], location="lr"). The default method="noteworthy" is used only in this function and indicates setting labels for points with large Studentized residuals, hat-values or Cook's distances. Set id=list(method="identify") for interactive point identification.

arguments to pass to the plot and points functions.

Value

If points are identified, returns a data frame with the hat values, Studentized residuals and Cook's distance of the identified points. If no points are identified, nothing is returned. This function is primarily used for its side-effect of drawing a plot.
