Extract Residual Standard Deviation 'Sigma'

Extract the estimated standard deviation of the errors, the “residual standard deviation” (also misnamed the “residual standard error”), from a fitted model.

Usage
# S3 method for merMod
sigma(object, …)
Arguments
object

a fitted model.

additional, optional arguments, passed from or to methods. (None currently in our two methods.)

Details

Package lme4 provides methods for mixed-effects models of class '>merMod and lists of linear models, '>lmList4.

Value

Typically a number, the estimated standard deviation of the errors (“residual standard deviation”) for Gaussian models, and - less interpretably - the square root of the residual deviance per degree of freedom in more general models.
