Hello,
suppose I have a multivariate multiple regression model such as the
following:
> DF<-data.frame(x1=rep(c(0,1),each=50),x2=rep(c(0,1),50))
> tmp<-rnorm(100)
> DF$y1<-tmp+DF$x1*.5+DF$x2*.3+rnorm(100,0,.5)
> DF$y2<-tmp+DF$x1*.5+DF$x2*.7+rnorm(100,0,.5)
> x.mlm<-lm(cbind(y1,y2)~x1+x2,data=DF)
> coef(x.mlm)
y1 y2
(Intercept) 0.07800993 0.2303557
x1 0.52936947 0.3728513
x2 0.13853332 0.4604842
How can I test whether x1 and x2 respectively have the same effect on y1
and y2? In other words, how can I test if coef(x.mlm)[2,1] is
statistically equal to coef(x.mlm)[2,2] and coef(x.mlm)[3,1] to
coef(x.mlm)[3,2]? I looked at linear.hypothesis {car} and glh.test
{gmodels}, but these do not seem the apply to multivariate models.
Thank you in advance,
Uli Keller
