# anova.rms

##### Analysis of Variance (Wald and F Statistics)

The `anova`

function automatically tests most meaningful hypotheses
in a design. For example, suppose that age and cholesterol are
predictors, and that a general interaction is modeled using a restricted
spline surface. `anova`

prints Wald statistics (\(F\) statistics
for an `ols`

fit) for testing linearity of age, linearity of
cholesterol, age effect (age + age by cholesterol interaction),
cholesterol effect (cholesterol + age by cholesterol interaction),
linearity of the age by cholesterol interaction (i.e., adequacy of the
simple age * cholesterol 1 d.f. product), linearity of the interaction
in age alone, and linearity of the interaction in cholesterol
alone. Joint tests of all interaction terms in the model and all
nonlinear terms in the model are also performed. For any multiple
d.f. effects for continuous variables that were not modeled through
`rcs`

, `pol`

, `lsp`

, etc., tests of linearity will be
omitted. This applies to matrix predictors produced by e.g.
`poly`

or `ns`

. `print.anova.rms`

is the printing
method. `plot.anova.rms`

draws dot charts depicting the importance
of variables in the model, as measured by Wald \(\chi^2\),
\(\chi^2\) minus d.f., AIC, \(P\)-values, partial
\(R^2\), \(R^2\) for the whole model after deleting the effects in
question, or proportion of overall model \(R^2\) that is due to each
predictor. `latex.anova.rms`

is the `latex`

method. It
substitutes Greek/math symbols in column headings, uses boldface for
`TOTAL`

lines, and constructs a caption. Then it passes the result
to `latex.default`

for conversion to LaTeX.

The `print`

method calls `latex`

or `html`

methods
depending on `options(prType=)`

, and output is to the console. For
`latex`

a `table`

environment is not used and an ordinary
`tabular`

is produced.

`html.anova.rms`

just calls `latex.anova.rms`

.

##### Arguments

- object
a

`rms`

fit object.`object`

must allow`vcov`

to return the variance-covariance matrix. For`latex`

is the result of`anova`

.- …
If omitted, all variables are tested, yielding tests for individual factors and for pooled effects. Specify a subset of the variables to obtain tests for only those factors, with a pooled Wald tests for the combined effects of all factors listed. Names may be abbreviated. For example, specify

`anova(fit,age,cholesterol)`

to get a Wald statistic for testing the joint importance of age, cholesterol, and any factor interacting with them.Can be optional graphical parameters to send to

`dotchart2`

, or other parameters to send to`latex.default`

. Ignored for`print`

.For

`html.anova.rms`

the arguments are passed to`latex.anova.rms`

.- main.effect
Set to

`TRUE`

to print the (usually meaningless) main effect tests even when the factor is involved in an interaction. The default is`FALSE`

, to print only the effect of the main effect combined with all interactions involving that factor.- tol
singularity criterion for use in matrix inversion

- test
For an

`ols`

fit, set`test="Chisq"`

to use Wald \(\chi^2\) tests rather than F-tests.- india
set to

`FALSE`

to exclude individual tests of interaction from the table- indnl
set to

`FALSE`

to exclude individual tests of nonlinearity from the table- ss
For an

`ols`

fit, set`ss=FALSE`

to suppress printing partial sums of squares, mean squares, and the Error SS and MS.- vnames
set to

`'labels'`

to use variable labels rather than variable names in the output- x
for

`print,plot,text`

is the result of`anova`

.- which
If

`which`

is not`"none"`

(the default),`print.anova.rms`

will add to the rightmost column of the output the list of parameters being tested by the hypothesis being tested in the current row. Specifying`which="subscripts"`

causes the subscripts of the regression coefficients being tested to be printed (with a subscript of one for the first non-intercept term).`which="names"`

prints the names of the terms being tested, and`which="dots"`

prints dots for terms being tested and blanks for those just being adjusted for.- what
what type of statistic to plot. The default is the Wald \(\chi^2\) statistic for each factor (adding in the effect of higher-ordered factors containing that factor) minus its degrees of freedom. The R2 choices for

`what`

only apply to`ols`

models.- xlab
x-axis label, default is constructed according to

`what`

.`plotmath`

symbols are used for R, by default.- pch
character for plotting dots in dot charts. Default is 16 (solid dot).

- rm.totals
set to

`FALSE`

to keep total \(\chi^2\)s (overall, nonlinear, interaction totals) in the chart.- rm.ia
set to

`TRUE`

to omit any effect that has`"*"`

in its name- rm.other
a list of other predictor names to omit from the chart

- newnames
a list of substitute predictor names to use, after omitting any.

- sort
default is to sort bars in descending order of the summary statistic

- margin
set to a vector of character strings to write text for selected statistics in the right margin of the dot chart. The character strings can be any combination of

`"chisq"`

,`"d.f."`

,`"P"`

,`"partial R2"`

,`"proportion R2"`

, and`"proportion chisq"`

. Default is to not draw any statistics in the margin. When`plotly`

is in effect, margin values are instead displayed as hover text.- pl
set to

`FALSE`

to suppress plotting. This is useful when you only wish to analyze the vector of statistics returned.- trans
set to a function to apply that transformation to the statistics being plotted, and to truncate negative values at zero. A good choice is

`trans=sqrt`

.- ntrans
`n`

argument to`pretty`

, specifying the number of values for which to place tick marks. This should be larger than usual because of nonlinear scaling, to provide a sufficient number of tick marks on the left (stretched) part of the chi-square scale.- height,width
height and width of

`plotly`

plots drawn using`dotchartp`

, in pixels. Ignored for ordinary plots. Defaults to minimum of 400 and 100 + 25 times the number of test statistics displayed.- title
title to pass to

`latex`

, default is name of fit object passed to`anova`

prefixed with`"anova."`

. For Windows, the default is`"ano"`

followed by the first 5 letters of the name of the fit object.- dec.chisq
number of places to the right of the decimal place for typesetting \(\chi^2\) values (default is

`2`

). Use zero for integer,`NA`

for floating point.- dec.F
digits to the right for \(F\) statistics (default is

`2`

)- dec.ss
digits to the right for sums of squares (default is

`NA`

, indicating floating point)- dec.ms
digits to the right for mean squares (default is

`NA`

)- dec.P
digits to the right for \(P\)-values

- table.env
see

`latex`

- caption
caption for table if

`table.env`

is`TRUE`

. Default is constructed from the response variable.

##### Details

If the statistics being plotted with `plot.anova.rms`

are few in
number and one of them is negative or zero, `plot.anova.rms`

will quit because of an error in `dotchart2`

.

The `latex`

method requires LaTeX packages `relsize`

and
`needspace`

.

##### Value

`anova.rms`

returns a matrix of class `anova.rms`

containing factors
as rows and \(\chi^2\), d.f., and \(P\)-values as
columns (or d.f., partial \(SS, MS, F, P\)). An attribute
`vinfo`

provides list of variables involved in each row and the
type of test done.
`plot.anova.rms`

invisibly returns the vector of quantities
plotted. This vector has a names attribute describing the terms for
which the statistics in the vector are calculated.

##### Side Effects

`print`

prints, `latex`

creates a
file with a name of the form `"title.tex"`

(see the `title`

argument above).
