Quantile Residuals for Gaussian Copula Marginal Regression

Computes various type of quantile residuals for validation of a fitted Gaussian copula marginal regression model, as described in Masarotto and Varin (2012; 2017).

Keywords
models, regression
Usage
# S3 method for gcmr
residuals(object, type=c("conditional","marginal"),
          method=c("random","mid"),...)
Arguments
object

an object of class gcmr, typically the result of a call to gcmr.

type

the type of quantile residuals which should be returned. The alternatives are: "conditional" (default) and "marginal".

method

different methods available for quantile residuals in case of discrete responses: "random" for randomized quantile residuals (default), and "mid" for mid interval quantile residuals as defined in Zucchini and MacDonald (2009).

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods.

Details

Quantile residuals are defined in Dunn and Smyth (1996). Two different types are available:

conditional quantile residuals that account for the dependence.

Conditional quantile residuals are normal quantiles of Rosenblatt (1952) transformations and they are appropriate for validation of the marginal regression models discussed in Masarotto and Varin (2012; 2017). If the responses are discrete, then the conditional quantile residuals are not well defined. This difficulty is overcame by randomized quantile residuals available through option method="random". Alternatively, Zucchini and MacDonald (2009) suggest the use of mid interval quantile residuals (method="mid").

Note

Differently from randomized quantile residuals, mid quantile residuals are not realizations of incorrelated standard normal variables under model conditions.

It is appropriate to inspect several sets of randomized quantile residuals before to take a decision about the model.

See Masarotto and Varin (2012; 2017) for more details.
