>From a basic R syntax perspective, you're missing several commas, and
you don't specify your data. You also have a substantial problem with
parenthesis matching, with 3 ( and 4 )
adjust is an argument to logit(), and I'm assuming na.action is an
argument to lm().
>> EvacLM <- lm((logit(sharer_prob) ~ sympathy + trust + fear + greed) adjust=TRUE) na.action=NULL)
EvacLM <- lm(logit(sharer_prob, adjust=TRUE) ~ sympathy + trust +
fear + greed, na.action=NULL, data=data)
If this is foreign to you, you should probably go read one of the many
good intro to R lessons online.
