Bonferroni Outlier Test

Reports the Bonferroni p-values for testing each observation in turn to be a mean-shift outliner, based Studentized residuals in linear (t-tests) and generalized linear models (normal tests).

Usage
outlierTest(model, ...)

# S3 method for lm outlierTest(model, cutoff=0.05, n.max=10, order=TRUE, labels=names(rstudent), ...)

# S3 method for outlierTest print(x, digits=5, ...)

Arguments
model

an lm or glm model object.

cutoff

observations with Bonferonni p-values exceeding cutoff are not reported, unless no observations are nominated, in which case the one with the largest Studentized residual is reported.

n.max

maximum number of observations to report (default, 10).

order

report Studenized residuals in descending order of magnitude? (default, TRUE).

labels

an optional vector of observation names.

...

arguments passed down to methods functions.

x

outlierTest object.

digits

number of digits for reported p-values.

Details

For a linear model, p-values reported use the t distribution with degrees of freedom one less than the residual df for the model. For a generalized linear model, p-values are based on the standard-normal distribution. The Bonferroni adjustment multiplies the usual two-sided p-value by the number of observations. The lm method works for glm objects. To show all of the observations set cutoff=Inf and n.max=Inf.

Value

an object of class outlierTest, which is normally just printed.
