Longitudinal/Clustered Data Correlation

Sets longitudinal/clustered data correlation in Gaussian copula regression models.

Keywords
regression, nonlinear
Usage
cluster.cormat(id, type = c("independence", "ar1", "ma1", 
		   	    "exchangeable", "unstructured"))
Arguments
id

subject id. This is a vector of the same lenght of the number of observations. Please note that data must be sorted in way that observations from the same cluster are contiguous.

type

a character string specifying the correlation structure. At the moment, the following are implemented:

independence working independence.
ar1 autoregressive of order 1.
ma1 moving average of order 1.
exchangeable exchangeable.
Details

The correlation matrices are inherited from the nlme package (Pinheiro and Bates, 2000).

Value

An object of class cormat.gcmr representing a correlation matrix for longitudinal or clustered data.
