Print method for variance-covariance objects

Usage

# S3 method for VarCorr.galamm
print(
  x,
  digits = max(3, getOption("digits") - 2),
  comp = c("Std.Dev.", "Variance"),
  corr = any(comp == "Std.Dev."),
  ...
)

Arguments

x

An object of class c("VarCorr.galamm", "VarCorr.merMod"), returned from VarCorr.galamm.

digits

Optional arguments specifying number of digits to use when printing.

comp

Character vector of length 1 or 2 specifying which variance components to print. Case sensitive. Can take one of the values "Std.Dev." and "Variance".

corr

Logical value indicating whether covariances or correlations should be printed.

...

Optional arguments passed on to other methods. Currently not used.

Value

The variance-covariance information is printed to the console and the argument x is silently returned.

Examples

# Linear mixed model with heteroscedastic residuals
mod <- galamm(
  formula = y ~ x + (1 | id),
  weights = ~ (1 | item),
  data = hsced
)
