aic

0th

Percentile

aic

Calculates the Akaike information criterion (AIC) from observed values, predicted values, the number of observations and the number of model parameters.

Usage
aic(o, p, k)
Arguments
o

A numeric vector. Observed values.

p

A numeric vector. Predicted values.

k

A number. The number of parameters in the model. Note that k includes the intercept, so for example, k is 2 for a linear regression model.

Details

Interpretation: smaller is better. Akaike information criterion (AIC) punishes complexity of models; a larger number of parameters (k) means a larger AIC value. As it is sensitive to the number of samples, AIC cannot easily be compared between datasets of different sizes.

Value

Akaike information criterion (AIC)
