I am conducting a gam smooth and having a devil of a time getting out
the answers so I can work with them.
Here are the two lines of code:
> model <- gam(y~lo(x, span=0.75, degree=2), family=poisson)
> resp_pout <- predict (model, data.frame (x=x), type = 'response')
The problem comes when I try to get the answers out. I cannot for the
life of me figure out the format of resp_pout, and I have been trying
literally for WEEKS to get the answer. Surely this is a perfectly
standard question which has been asked and answered dozens of times.
Let's see if I can rephrase the question.
There are 118 response points generated by the smoothing operation. I
need a function f such that v <- f(resp_pout) is a vector with 118
components comprising the 118 response points. Would some kind soul
provide it? Or is my entire research effort going to be BLOWN UP
because I can't figure out how to do this?
