Summary of rqss fit

Summary Method for a fitted rqss model.

Keywords
robust, regression, smooth
Usage
# S3 method for rqss
summary(object, cov = FALSE, ztol = 1e-5, ...)
Arguments
object

an object returned from rqss fitting, describing an additive model estimating a conditional quantile function. See qss for details on how to specify these terms.

cov

if TRUE return covariance matrix for the parametric components as Vcov and a list of covariance matrices for the nonparametric components as Vqss

ztol

Zero tolerance parameter used to determine the number of zero residuals indicating the estimated parametric dimension of the model, the so-called effective degrees of freedom.

Details

This is a highly experimental function intended to explore inferential methods for rqss fitting. The function is modeled after summary.gam in Simon Wood's (2006) mgcv package. (Of course, Simon should not be blamed for any deficiencies in the current implementation. The basic idea is to condition on the lambda selection and construct quasi-Bayesian credibility intervals based on normal approximation of the "posterior," as computed using the Powell kernel estimate of the usual quantile regression sandwich. See summary.rq for further details and references. The function produces a conventional coefficient table with standard errors t-statistics and p-values for the coefficients on the parametric part of the model, and another table for additive nonparametric effects. The latter reports F statistics intended to evaluate the significance of these components individually. In addition the fidelity (value of the QR objective function evaluated at the fitted model), the effective degrees of freedom, and the sample size are reported.
