Show Paths

Returns a list with two compontents: path gives the actual paths, and open shows whether each path is open (d-connected) or closed (d-separated).

Usage
paths(x, from = exposures(x), to = outcomes(x), Z = list(), limit = 100, directed = FALSE)
Arguments
x
the input graph, a DAG, PDAG, or MAG.
from
name(s) of first variable(s).
to
name(s) of last variable(s).
Z
names of variables to condition on for determining open paths.
limit
maximum amount of paths to show. In general, the number of paths grows exponentially with the number of variables in the graph, such that path inspection is not useful except for the most simple models.
directed
logical; should only directed (i.e., causal) paths be shown?
Aliases
  • paths
Examples
sum( paths(backDoorGraph(getExample("Shrier")))$open ) # Any open Back-Door paths?
