Number of Replications of Terms
Returns a vector or a list of the number of replicates for each term in the formula.
replications(formula, data = NULL, na.action)
- a formula or a terms object or a data frame.
- a data frame used to find the objects in
- function for handling missing values. Defaults to
data, then a setting of the option
na.failif that is not set.
formula is a data frame and
data is missing,
formula is used for
data with the formula
Any character vectors in the formula are coerced to factors.
- A vector or list with one entry for each term in the formula giving
the number(s) of replications for each level. If all levels are
balanced (have the same number of replications) the result is a
vector, otherwise it is a list with a component for each terms,
as a vector, matrix or array as required.
A test for balance is
