HGPLOT procedure

Produces model-checking plots for a hierarchical or double hierarchical generalized linear model analysis (R.W. Payne, Y. Lee, J.A. Nelder & M. Noh).

Options

MODELTYPE = string token Type of model for which plots are required (mean, dispersion); default mean
RANDOMTERM = formula Random term whose residuals are to be plotted; default * i.e. the residuals from the full model
DHGRANDOMTERM = formula Random model term in a DHGLM whose residuals are to be plotted; default *
RMETHOD = string token Type of residual to use (deviance, Pearson, simple); default devi
INDEX = variate or factor X-values to use for an index plot; default !(1,2...)
GRAPHICS = string token What type of graphics to use (lineprinter, highresolution); default high
TITLE = text Overall title for the plots; if unset, the identifier of the y-variate is used
SAVE = pointer Specifies the analysis (by HGANALYSE) from which the residuals and fitted values are to be taken; by default they are taken from the most recent analysis

Parameters

METHOD = string tokens Types of graph (up to four out of the six possible) to be plotted (histogram, fittedvalues, absresidual, normal, halfnormal, index); default hist, fitt, norm, absr
PEN = scalars, variates or factors Pen(s) to use for each plot

Description

HGPLOT is one of several procedures with the prefix HG, which provide tools for fitting the hierarchical and double hierarchical generalized linear models (HGLMs and DHGLMs) defined by Lee & Nelder (1996, 2001, 2006) and discussed by Lee, Nelder & Pawitan (2006). The models are defined by the HGFIXEDMODEL, HGRANDOMMODEL and HGDRANDOMMODEL procedures, and fitted by the HGANALYSE procedure. HGPLOT displays plots of residuals to help with model checking.

Six types of plot are available. They are selected using the METHOD parameter

with settings:

    histogram histogram of residuals;
    fittedvalues residuals versus fitted values;
    absresidual absolute values of residuals versus fitted values;
    normal Normal plot;
    halfnormal half-Normal plot; and
    index plot against an “index” variable (specified by the INDEX option).

Up to four can be examined in any call of the procedure. The PEN parameter can be used to specify the graphics pen or pens to use for each plot. The TITLE option can supply an overall title. If this is not set, the identifier of the y-variate is used.

The MODELTYPE option indicates the type of model for which the plots are required. The default setting mean requests plots from the mean model, and the alternative setting dispersion obtains plots from the dispersion model. The RANDOMTERM option specifies the random term whose residuals are to be plotted; if this is omitted the plot is for the residual term (phi). If a DHGLM has been fitted, you can plot residuals from the HGLM that is being used as a dispersion model by setting the DHGRANDOMTERM parameter to the random term concerned. The type of residual to plot is specified by the RMETHOD option; by default these are deviance residuals.

By default, high-resolution graphics are used. Line-printer graphics can be used by setting option GRAPHICS=lineprinter.

Options: MODELTYPE, RANDOMTERM, DHGRANDOMTERM, RMETHOD, INDEX, GRAPHICS, TITLE, SAVE.

Parameters: METHOD, PEN.

Method

HGPLOT calls procedure DRESIDUALS to do the plotting.
