##### Residuals from an `lrm`

or `orm`

Fit

For a binary logistic model fit, computes the following residuals, letting \(P\) denote the predicted probability of the higher category of \(Y\), \(X\) denote the design matrix (with a column of 1s for the intercept), and \(L\) denote the logit or linear predictors: ordinary or Li-Shepherd (\(Y-P\)), score (\(X (Y-P)\)), pearson (\((Y-P)/\sqrt{P(1-P)}\)), deviance (for \(Y=0\) is \(-\sqrt{2|\log(1-P)|}\), for \(Y=1\) is \(\sqrt{2|\log(P)|}\), pseudo dependent variable used in influence statistics (\(L + (Y-P)/(P(1-P))\)), and partial (\(X_{i}\beta_{i} + (Y-P)/(P(1-P))\)).

Will compute all these residuals for an ordinal logistic model, using
as temporary binary responses dichotomizations of \(Y\), along with
the corresponding \(P\), the probability that \(Y \geq\) cutoff. For
`type="partial"`

, all
possible dichotomizations are used, and for `type="score"`

, the actual
components of the first derivative of the log likelihood are used for
an ordinal model. For `type="li.shepherd"`

the residual is
\(Pr(W < Y) - Pr(W > Y)\) where Y is the observed response and W is a
random variable from the fitted distribution.
Alternatively, specify `type="score.binary"`

to use binary model score residuals but for all cutpoints of \(Y\)
(plotted only, not returned). The `score.binary`

,
`partial`

, and perhaps `score`

residuals are useful for
checking the proportional odds assumption.
If the option `pl=TRUE`

is used to plot the `score`

or
`score.binary`

residuals, a score residual plot is made for each
column of the design (predictor) matrix, with `Y`

cutoffs on the
x-axis and the mean +- 1.96 standard errors of the score residuals on
the y-axis. You can instead use a box plot to display these residuals,
for both `score.binary`

and `score`

.
Proportional odds dictates a horizontal `score.binary`

plot. Partial
residual plots use smooth nonparametric estimates, separately for each
cutoff of \(Y\). One examines that plot for parallelism of the curves
to check the proportional odds assumption, as well as to see if the
predictor behaves linearly.

Also computes a variety of influence statistics and the le Cessie - van Houwelingen - Copas - Hosmer unweighted sum of squares test for global goodness of fit, done separately for each cutoff of \(Y\) in the case of an ordinal model.

The `plot.lrm.partial`

function computes partial residuals for a series
of binary logistic model fits that all used the same predictors and that
specified `x=TRUE, y=TRUE`

. It then computes smoothed partial residual
relationships (using `lowess`

with `iter=0`

) and plots them separately
for each predictor, with residual plots from all model fits shown on the
same plot for that predictor.

"score", "score.binary", "pearson", "deviance", "pseudo.dep",

# S3 method for orm
residuals(object, type=c("li.shepherd","ordinary",
"score", "score.binary", "pearson", "deviance", "pseudo.dep",
"partial", "dfbeta", "dfbetas", "dffit", "dffits", "hat", "gof", "lp1"),
pl=FALSE, xlim, ylim, kint, label.curves=TRUE, which, …)
```# S3 method for lrm.partial
plot(…, labels, center=FALSE, ylim)

##### Arguments

- object
object created by

`lrm`

or`orm`

- …
for

`residuals`

, applies to`type="partial"`

when`pl`

is not`FALSE`

. These are extra arguments passed to the smoothing function. Can also be used to pass extra arguments to`boxplot`

for`type="score"`

or`"score.binary"`

. For`plot.lrm.partial`

this specifies a series of binary model fit objects.- type
type of residual desired. Use

`type="lp1"`

to get approximate leave-out-1 linear predictors, derived by subtracting the`dffit`

from the original linear predictor values.- pl
applies only to

`type="partial"`

,`"score"`

, and`"score.binary"`

. For score residuals in an ordinal model, set`pl=TRUE`

to get means and approximate 0.95 confidence bars vs. \(Y\), separately for each \(X\). Alternatively, specify`pl="boxplot"`

to use`boxplot`

to draw the plot, with notches and with width proportional to the square root of the cell sizes. For partial residuals, set`pl=TRUE`

(which uses`lowess`

) or`pl="supsmu"`

to get smoothed partial residual plots for all columns of \(X\) using`supsmu`

. Use`pl="loess"`

to use`loess`

and get confidence bands (`"loess"`

is not implemented for ordinal responses). Under R,`pl="loess"`

uses`lowess`

and does not provide confidence bands. If there is more than one \(X\), you should probably use`par(mfrow=c( , ))`

before calling`resid`

. Note that`pl="loess"`

results in`plot.loess`

being called, which requires a large memory allocation.- xlim
plotting range for x-axis (default = whole range of predictor)

- ylim
plotting range for y-axis (default = whole range of residuals, range of all confidence intervals for

`score`

or`score.binary`

or range of all smoothed curves for`partial`

if`pl=TRUE`

, or 0.1 and 0.9 quantiles of the residuals for`pl="boxplot"`

.)- kint
for an ordinal model for residuals other than

`li.shepherd`

,`partial`

,`score`

, or`score.binary`

, specifies the intercept (and the cutoff of \(Y\)) to use for the calculations. Specifying`kint=2`

, for example, means to use \(Y \geq\) 3rd level.- label.curves
set to

`FALSE`

to suppress curve labels when`type="partial"`

. The default,`TRUE`

, causes`labcurve`

to be invoked to label curves where they are most separated.`label.curves`

can be a list containing the`opts`

parameter for`labcurve`

, to send options to`labcurve`

, such as`tilt`

. The default for`tilt`

here is`TRUE`

.- which
a vector of integers specifying column numbers of the design matrix for which to compute or plot residuals, for

`type="partial","score","score.binary"`

.- labels
for

`plot.lrm.partial`

this specifies a vector of character strings providing labels for the list of binary fits. By default, the names of the fit objects are used as labels. The`labcurve`

function is used to label the curve with the`labels`

.- center
for

`plot.lrm.partial`

this causes partial residuals for every model to have a mean of zero before smoothing and plotting

##### Details

For the goodness-of-fit test, the le Cessie-van Houwelingen normal test statistic for the unweighted sum of squared errors (Brier score times \(n\)) is used. For an ordinal response variable, the test for predicting the probability that \(Y\geq j\) is done separately for all \(j\) (except the first). Note that the test statistic can have strange behavior (i.e., it is far too large) if the model has no predictive value.

For most of the values of `type`

, you must have specified
`x=TRUE, y=TRUE`

to `lrm`

or `orm`

.

There is yet no literature on interpreting score residual plots for the ordinal model. Simulations when proportional odds is satisfied have still shown a U-shaped residual plot. The series of binary model score residuals for all cutoffs of \(Y\) seems to better check the assumptions. See the examples.

The li.shepherd residual is a single value per observation on the probability scale and can be useful for examining linearity, checking for outliers, and measuring residual correlation.

##### Value

a matrix (`type="partial","dfbeta","dfbetas","score"`

),
test statistic (`type="gof"`

), or a vector otherwise.
For partial residuals from an ordinal
model, the returned object is a 3-way array (rows of \(X\) by columns
of \(X\) by cutoffs of \(Y\)), and NAs deleted during the fit
are not re-inserted into the residuals. For `score.binary`

, nothing
is returned.
