yates_setup {survival} R Documentation

Method for adding new models to the yates function.

Description

This is a method which is called by the yates function, in order to setup the code to handle a particular model type. Methods for glm, coxph, and default are part of the survival package.

Usage

yates_setup(fit, ...)


Arguments

 fit a fitted model object ... optional arguments for some methods

Details

If the predicted value should be the linear predictor, the function should return NULL. The yates routine has particularly efficient code for this case. Otherwise it should return a prediction function or a list of two elements containing the prediction function and a summary function. The prediction function will be passed the linear predictor as a single argument and should return a vector of predicted values.

Note

See the vignette on population prediction for more details.
