Percentile

supF-, aveF- and expF-Test

Performs the supF-, aveF- or expF-test

Keywords
htest
Usage
# S3 method for Fstats
sctest(x, type = c("supF", "aveF", "expF"),
    asymptotic = FALSE, ...)
Arguments
x

an object of class "Fstats".

type

a character string specifying which test will be performed.

asymptotic

logical. Only necessary if x contains just a single F statistic and type is "supF" or "aveF". If then set to TRUE the asymptotic (chi-square) distribution instead of the exact (F) distribution will be used to compute the p value.

...

currently not used.

Details

If x contains just a single F statistic and type is "supF" or "aveF" the Chow test will be performed.

The original GAUSS code for computing the p values of the supF-, aveF- and expF-test was written by Bruce Hansen and is available from http://www.ssc.wisc.edu/~bhansen/. R port by Achim Zeileis.

Value

An object of class "htest" containing:

statistic

the test statistic,

p.value

the corresponding p value,

method

a character string with the method used,

data.name

a character string with the data name.

Examples
# NOT RUN {
## Load dataset "nhtemp" with average yearly temperatures in New Haven
data(nhtemp)
## plot the data
plot(nhtemp)

## test the model null hypothesis that the average temperature remains
## constant over the years for potential break points between 1941
## (corresponds to from = 0.5) and 1962 (corresponds to to = 0.85)
## compute F statistics
fs <- Fstats(nhtemp ~ 1, from = 0.5, to = 0.85)
## plot the F statistics
plot(fs, alpha = 0.01)
## and the corresponding p values
plot(fs, pval = TRUE, alpha = 0.01)
## perform the aveF test
sctest(fs, type = "aveF")
# }
