Dear users of the R mailing list,
I am a ph.d. student in biology working on red deer in Norway, who would
like to conduct an analysis with random factor where the response is
binomially distributed. This cannot be conducted in S-plus, and I was told
by others that it may be possible in R. However, I soon got into trouble
which I hope you can help me to solve.
My model is on this form:
cbind(success,1-success) ~ variable 1 (numeric) + variable 2 (numeric) +
variable 3 (factor) + variable 4 (factor). I have only one random factor,
variable 5 (factor).
We assume that the analysis to be used is a non-linear mixed effects model,
and hence use the nlme function in R. However, we failed to specify this
model in a correct way. My question is therefore:
What is the syntax for this specific model (we got especially confused by
the "start" argument)? If anyone could write the entire formula for this
specific model we would be very greatful!
Thank you!
With regrads, Leif Egil Loe
