Loess Bootstrap

Bootstrap of a Local Polynomial Regression (loess)

The function fits a loess curve and then calculates a symmetric nonparametric bootstrap with a confidence region. Fitted curves are evaluated at a fixed number of equally-spaced x values, regardless of the number of x values in the data. Some replicates do not include the values at the lower and upper end of the range of x values. If the number of such replicates is too large, it becomes impossible to construct a confidence region that includes a fraction "confidence" of the bootstrap replicates. In such cases, the left and/or right portion of the confidence region is truncated.

Usage
loess.boot(x, y, nreps = 100, confidence = 0.95, ...)
Arguments
x

Independent variable

y

Dependent variable

nreps

Number of bootstrap replicates

confidence

Fraction of replicates contained in confidence region

...

Additional arguments passed to loess function

Value

list object containing

  • nreps Number of bootstrap replicates

  • confidence Confidence interval (region)

  • span alpha (span) parameter used loess fit

  • degree polynomial degree used in loess fit

  • normalize Normalized data (TRUE/FALSE)

  • family Family of statistic used in fit

  • fit data.frame including:

    1. x - Equally-spaced x index (see NOTES)

    2. y.fit - loess fit

    3. up.lim - Upper confidence interval

    4. low.lim - Lower confidence interval

    5. stddev - Standard deviation of loess fit at each x value
