Details

na.action is a generic function, and na.action.default its default method. The latter extracts the "na.action" component of a list if present, otherwise the "na.action" attribute.

When model.frame is called, it records any information on NA handling in a "na.action" attribute. Most model-fitting functions return this as a component of their result.

Value

• Information from the action which was applied to object if NAs were handled specially, or NULL.
