effects {stats} | R Documentation |
Returns (orthogonal) effects from a fitted model, usually a linear
model. This is a generic function, but currently only has a methods for
objects inheriting from classes "lm"
and "glm"
.

For a linear model fitted by lm
or aov
,
the effects are the uncorrelated single-degree-of-freedom values
obtained by projecting the data onto the successive orthogonal
subspaces generated by the QR decomposition during the fitting
process. The first r (the rank of the model) are associated with
coefficients and the remainder span the space of residuals (but are
not associated with particular residuals).
Empty models do not have effects.
A (named) numeric vector of the same length as
residuals
, or a matrix if there were multiple responses
in the fitted model, in either case of class "coef"
.
The first r rows are labelled by the corresponding coefficients, and the remaining rows are unlabelled. Note that in rank-deficient models the corresponding coefficients will be in a different order if pivoting occurred.
