summary.estimateEffect: Summary for estimateEffect


Create a summary regression table similar to those produced for lm


# S3 method for estimateEffect
summary(object, topics = NULL, nsim = 500, ...)



an object of class "estimateEffect", usually a result of a call to estimateEffect


a vector containing the topic numbers for each a summary is to be calculated. Must be contained in the original estimateEffect object


the number of simulations to use per parameter set to calculate the standard error. Defaults to 500


further arguments passed to or from other methods


This function along with print.summary.estimateEffect creates regression tables that look like typically summaries you see in R. In general we recommend that you use non-linearities such as splines via function like s and in those circumstances the tables are not particularly interpretable.

Confidence intervals are calculated by using draws from the covariance matrix of each simulation to estimate the standard error. Then a t-distribution approximation is applied to calculate the various quantities of interest.
