Summary methods for Censored Quantile Regression

Returns a summary object for a censored quantile regression fit. A null value will be returned if printing is invoked.

Keywords
regression
Usage
# S3 method for crq
summary(object, taus = 1:4/5, alpha = .05, se="boot", covariance=TRUE,  ...)
# S3 method for summary.crq
print(x, digits = max(5, .Options$digits - 2), ...)
# S3 method for summary.crqs
print(x,  ...)
# S3 method for summary.crqs
plot(x, nrow = 3, ncol = 3, CoxPHit = NULL,  ...)
Arguments
object

An object of class "crq" produced by a call to crq().

taus

Quantiles to be summarized. Specifying only one value can produce annoying error messages harmful to your mental health.

x

An object of class "crq" produced by a call to crq().

se

specifies the method used to compute standard standard errors. but the only available method (so far) is "boot". Further arguments to boot.crq and boot.rq can be passed with the … argument.

covariance

logical flag to indicate whether the full covariance matrix of the estimated parameters should be returned.

nrow

Number of rows of the plot layout.

ncol

Number of columns of the plot layout.

alpha

Confidence level for summary intervals.

digits

Number of digits to be printed in summary display.

CoxPHit

An object of class coxph produced by coxph.

...

Optional arguments to summary, e.g. to specify bootstrap methods sample sizes, etc. see boot.rq and boot.crq

Details

For the Powell method the resampling strategy used by the se = "boot" method is based on the Bilias, Chen and Ying (2000) proposal. For the Portnoy and Peng-Huang methods the bootstrapping is by default actually based on a delete-d jackknife, as described in Portnoy (2013), but resampling xy pairs using either conventional multinomial resampling or using exponential weighting as in Bose and Chatterjee (2003) can be used by specifying the bmethod argument. Note that the default number of replications is set at \(R = 100\) a value that is obviously too small for most applications. This is done merely to speed up the examples in the documentation and facilitate testing. Larger, more appropriate values of \(R\) can be passed to the bootstrapping functions via the argument of the summary method. It is important to recognize that when some of the bootstrap replications are NA they are simply ignored in the computation of the confidence bands and standard errors as currently reported. The number of these NAs is returned as part of the summary.crq object, and when printed is also reported.

Value

For method "Powell" an object of class summary.crq is returned with the following components:

coefficients

a p by 4 matrix consisting of the coefficients, their estimated standard errors, their t-statistics, and their associated p-values.

cov

the estimated covariance matrix for the coefficients in the model, provided that covariance = TRUE appears in the calling sequence.

rdf

the residual degrees of freedom

tau

the quantile estimated

For the other methods an object of class summary.crq is returned with the following components:
coefficients

a list of p by 6 matrix consisting of the coefficients, upper and lower bounds for a (1-alpha) level confidence interval, their estimated standard errors, their t-statistics, and their associated p-values, one component for each element of the specified taus vector.

cov

the estimated covariance matrix for the coefficients in the model, provided that covariance = TRUE in the called sequence.
