A Simple Meat Matrix Estimator

Estimating the variance of the estimating functions of a regression model by cross products of the empirical estimating functions.

Keywords
regression
Usage
meat(x, adjust = FALSE, …)
Arguments
x

a fitted model object.

adjust

logical. Should a finite sample adjustment be made? This amounts to multiplication with $$n/(n-k)$$ where $$n$$ is the number of observations and $$k$$ the number of estimated parameters.

arguments passed to the estfun function.

Details

For some theoretical background along with implementation details see Zeileis (2006).

Value

A $$k \times k$$ matrix corresponding containing the scaled cross products of the empirical estimating functions.
