glmerGOF

The goal of glmerGOF is to provide a goodness of fit test of the presumed Gaussian distribution of the random effect in logistic mixed models fit with lme4::glmer(family = "binomial"). The method implemented is introduced in Tchetgen Tchetgen and Coull (2006):

Tchetgen Tchetgen, E. J., & Coull, B. A. (2006) A Diagnostic Test for the Mixing Distribution in a Generalised Linear Mixed Model. Biometrika, 93(4), 1003-1010. DOI: 10.1093/biomet/93.4.1003

Installation

glmerGOF is available through github:

remotes::install_github("BarkleyBG/glmerGOF")

Usage

An introductory tutorial is provided that describes how to use this package. The function that implements the test is glmerGOF::testGOF(), which takes as mandatory input:

  • a fitted lme4::glmer() model
  • a fitted survival::clogit() model
  • the original dataset
  • a list providing two variable names

Once the two models are fitted, then test statistics can be found:

test_results <- testGOF(
  data = my_data,
  fitted_model_clogit = fit_clogit,
  fitted_model_glmm  = fit_glmm,
  var_names = list(DV = "y", grouping = "id"), 
  gradient_derivative_method = "simple"
)

The test results can be shown as:

test_results$results
# $D
# [1] 1.230103
# 
# $p_value
# [1] 0.267387

Please see the Introduction vignette for a working example.

Potential future developments

Please refer to the lifecycle badge for its current status. This package was created in early 2019 and may undergo future developments. Please email the maintainer if any of these changes are of interest, or if you would like to work on them:

  • Ability to manually align glmer and clogit coefficients
  • Parallelization backend
  • Updated model options
