S3 methods for stanmvreg objects. There are also several methods (listed in See Also, below) with their own individual help pages. The main difference between these methods and the stanreg methods is that the methods described here generally include an additional argument m which allows the user to specify which submodel they wish to return the result for. If the argument m is set to NULL then the result will generally be a named list with each element of the list containing the result for one of the submodels.

## Arguments

object, x A fitted model object returned by one of the multivariate rstanarm modelling functions. See stanreg-objects. Integer specifying the number or name of the submodel Ignored, except by the update method. See update. A logical specifying whether to only retain the fixed effect part of the longitudinal submodel formulas A logical specifying whether to only retain the random effect part of the longitudinal submodel formulas An updated formula for the model. For a multivariate model formula. should be a list of formulas, as described for the formula argument in stan_mvmer. See update. An updated formula for the longitudinal or event submodel, when object was estimated using stan_jm. For a multivariate joint model formulaLong. should be a list of formulas, as described for the formulaLong argument in stan_jm. Logical specifying whether to remove the string identifying the submodel (e.g. y1|, y2|, Long1|, Long2|, Event|) from each of the parameter names.

## Details

Most of these methods are similar to the methods defined for objects of class 'lm', 'glm', 'glmer', etc. However there are a few exceptions:

coef

Medians are used for point estimates. See the Point estimates section in print.stanmvreg for more details. coef returns a list equal to the length of the number of submodels. The first elements of the list are the coefficients from each of the fitted longitudinal submodels and are the same layout as those returned by coef method of the lme4 package, that is, the sum of the random and fixed effects coefficients for each explanatory variable for each level of each grouping factor. The final element of the returned list is a vector of fixed effect coefficients from the event submodel.

se

The se function returns standard errors based on mad. See the Uncertainty estimates section in print.stanmvreg for more details.

confint

Not supplied, since the posterior_interval function should be used instead to compute Bayesian uncertainty intervals.

residuals

Residuals are always of type "response" (not "deviance" residuals or any other type).
