Dear R list,
How can confidence interval be derived for e.g. the Tau-a coefficient or the
c index (area under ROC curve) such that I can compare the fitted lrm
(logistic) models with each other. Is this possible?
The aim is to conclude that one model is significantly better than other
model (a, b or c).
y~a (continu)+ d(catergoric)
y~b (continu)+ d(catergoric)
y~c (continu)+ d(catergoric)
I will look at residual deviance, the AIC, c-index en Tau-a to compare
different logistic models (lrm Design package). All extra advice is mostly
welcome!
Regards,
Jan
