summ prints output for a regression model in a fashion similar to summary, but formatted differently with more options.

# S3 method for rq
summ(model, scale = FALSE,
  confint = getOption("summ-confint", FALSE),
  ci.width = getOption("summ-ci.width", 0.95), se = c("nid", "rank",
  "iid", "ker", "boot"), boot.sims = 1000, boot.method = "xy",
  vifs = getOption("summ-vifs", FALSE),
  digits = getOption("jtools-digits", 2),
  pvals = getOption("summ-pvals", TRUE),
  stars = getOption("summ-stars", FALSE), n.sd = 1, center = FALSE,
  transform.response = FALSE, data = NULL,
  model.info = getOption("summ-model.info", TRUE),
  model.fit = getOption("summ-model.fit", TRUE), which.cols = NULL,
  ...)

Arguments

model

A rq model. At this time, rqs models (multiple tau parameters) are not supported.

scale

If TRUE, reports standardized regression coefficients. Default is FALSE.

confint

Show confidence intervals instead of standard errors? Default is FALSE.

ci.width

A number between 0 and 1 that signifies the width of the desired confidence interval. Default is .95, which corresponds to a 95% confidence interval. Ignored if confint = FALSE.

se

One of "nid", "rank", "iid", "ker", or "boot". "nid" is default. See quantreg::summary.rq() documentation for more about these options.

boot.sims

If se = "boot", the number of bootstrap replications to perform. This is passed as the R argument to boot.rq

boot.method

If se = "boot", the type of bootstrapping method to use. Default is "xy", but see quantreg::boot.rq() for more options.

vifs

If TRUE, adds a column to output with variance inflation factors (VIF). Default is FALSE.

digits

An integer specifying the number of digits past the decimal to report in the output. Default is 2. You can change the default number of digits for all jtools functions with options("jtools-digits" = digits) where digits is the desired number.

pvals

Show p values and significance stars? If FALSE, these are not printed. Default is TRUE.

stars

Show significance stars with p values? Default is FALSE.

n.sd

If scale = TRUE, how many standard deviations should predictors be divided by? Default is 1, though some suggest 2.

center

If you want coefficients for mean-centered variables but don't want to standardize, set this to TRUE.

transform.response

Should scaling/centering apply to response variable? Default is FALSE.

data

If you provide the data used to fit the model here, that data frame is used to re-fit the model (if scale is TRUE) instead of the stats::model.frame() of the model. This is particularly useful if you have variable transformations or polynomial terms specified in the formula.

model.info

Toggles printing of basic information on sample size, name of DV, and number of predictors.

model.fit

Toggles printing of model fit statistics.

which.cols

Developmental feature. By providing columns by name, you can add/remove/reorder requested columns in the output. Not fully supported, for now.

...

This just captures extra arguments that may only work for other types of models.

Details

This method implements most of the things I think most users would asking summary.rq for. hs, U, and gamma are ignored.

Note that when using se = "rank", there are no standard errors, test statistics, or p values calculated.

About the R1 fit statistic: Described in Koenker & Machado (1999), this offers an interpretation similar to R-squared in OLS regression. While you could calculate R-squared for these models, it goes against the underlying theoretical rationale for them. Koenker himself is not a big fan of R1 either, but it's something. See Koenker & Machado (1999) for more info.
