# influence.measures

##### Regression Deletion Diagnostics

This suite of functions can be used to compute some of the regression (leave-one-out deletion) diagnostics for linear and generalized linear models discussed in Belsley, Kuh and Welsch (1980), Cook and Weisberg (1982), etc.

- Keywords
- regression

##### Usage

```
influence.measures(model)
rstandard(model, ...)
"rstandard"(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), sd = sqrt(deviance(model)/df.residual(model)), ...)
"rstandard"(model, infl = influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), type = c("deviance", "pearson"), ...)
rstudent(model, ...)
"rstudent"(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), res = infl$wt.res, ...)
"rstudent"(model, infl = influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), ...)
dffits(model, infl = , res = )
dfbeta(model, ...)
"dfbeta"(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = TRUE), ...)
dfbetas(model, ...)
"dfbetas"(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = TRUE), ...)
covratio(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), res = weighted.residuals(model))
cooks.distance(model, ...)
"cooks.distance"(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), res = weighted.residuals(model), sd = sqrt(deviance(model)/df.residual(model)), hat = infl$hat, ...)
"cooks.distance"(model, infl = influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), res = infl$pear.res, dispersion = summary(model)$dispersion, hat = infl$hat, ...)
hatvalues(model, ...)
"hatvalues"(model, infl = lm.influence(model, do.coef = FALSE), ...)
hat(x, intercept = TRUE)
```

##### Arguments

- model
- an R object, typically returned by
`lm`

or`glm`

. - infl
- influence structure as returned by
`lm.influence`

or`influence`

(the latter only for the`glm`

method of`rstudent`

and`cooks.distance`

). - res
- (possibly weighted) residuals, with proper default.
- sd
- standard deviation to use, see default.
- dispersion
- dispersion (for
`glm`

objects) to use, see default. - hat
- hat values $H[i,i]$, see default.
- type
- type of residuals for
`glm`

method for`rstandard.`

- x
- the $X$ or design matrix.
- intercept
- should an intercept column be prepended to
`x`

? - ...
- further arguments passed to or from other methods.

##### Details

The primary high-level function is `influence.measures`

which produces a
class `"infl"`

object tabular display showing the DFBETAS for
each model variable, DFFITS, covariance ratios, Cook's distances and
the diagonal elements of the hat matrix. Cases which are influential
with respect to any of these measures are marked with an asterisk.

The functions `dfbetas`

, `dffits`

,
`covratio`

and `cooks.distance`

provide direct access to the
corresponding diagnostic quantities. Functions `rstandard`

and
`rstudent`

give the standardized and Studentized residuals
respectively. (These re-normalize the residuals to have unit variance,
using an overall and leave-one-out measure of the error variance
respectively.)

Values for generalized linear models are approximations, as described in Williams (1987) (except that Cook's distances are scaled as $F$ rather than as chi-square values). The approximations can be poor when some cases have large influence.

The optional `infl`

, `res`

and `sd`

arguments are there
to encourage the use of these direct access functions, in situations
where, e.g., the underlying basic influence measures (from
`lm.influence`

or the generic `influence`

) are
already available.

Note that cases with `weights == 0`

are *dropped* from all
these functions, but that if a linear model has been fitted with
`na.action = na.exclude`

, suitable values are filled in for the
cases excluded during fitting.

The function `hat()`

exists mainly for S (version 2)
compatibility; we recommend using `hatvalues()`

instead.

##### Note

For `hatvalues`

, `dfbeta`

, and `dfbetas`

, the method
for linear models also works for generalized linear models.
