rv {locfit}R Documentation

Residual variance from a "locfit" object.

Description

As part of the locfit fitting procedure, an estimate of the residual variance is computed; the rv function extracts the variance from the "locfit" object. The estimate used is the residual sum of squares (or residual deviance, for quasi-likelihood models), divided by the residual degrees of freedom.

For likelihood (not quasi-likelihood) models, the estimate is 1.0.

Usage

rv(fit)

Arguments
