bootBCa: BCa Bootstrap on Existing Bootstrap Replicates

Description

This functions constructs an object resembling one produced by the boot package's boot function, and runs that package's boot.ci function to compute BCa and percentile confidence limits. bootBCa can provide separate confidence limits for a vector of statistics when estimate has length greater than 1. In that case, estimates must have the same number of columns as estimate has values.

Usage

bootBCa(estimate, estimates, type=c('percentile','bca','basic'),
               n, seed, conf.int = 0.95)

Arguments

estimate

original whole-sample estimate

estimates

vector of bootstrap estimates

type

type of confidence interval, defaulting to nonparametric percentile

n

original number of observations

seed

.Random.seem in effect before bootstrap estimates were run

conf.int

confidence level

Value

a 2-vector if estimate is of length 1, otherwise a matrix with 2 rows and number of columns equal to the length of estimate

Examples

# NOT RUN {
x1 <- runif(100); x2 <- runif(100); y <- sample(0:1, 100, TRUE)
f <- lrm(y ~ x1 + x2, x=TRUE, y=TRUE)
seed <- .Random.seed
b <- bootcov(f)
# Get estimated log odds at x1=.4, x2=.6
X <- cbind(c(1,1), x1=c(.4,2), x2=c(.6,3))
est <- X <!-- %*% coef(b) -->
ests <- t(X <!-- %*% t(b$boot.Coef)) -->
bootBCa(est, ests, n=100, seed=seed)
bootBCa(est, ests, type='bca', n=100, seed=seed)
bootBCa(est, ests, type='basic', n=100, seed=seed)
