Tidy summarizes information about the components of a model. A model component might be a single term in a regression, a single hypothesis, a cluster, or a class. Exactly what tidy considers to be a model component varies across models but is usually self-evident. If a model has several distinct types of components, you will need to specify which components to return.

The methods should work with any model that conforms to the ergm class, such as those produced from weighted networks by the ergm.count package.

## Usage

```
# S3 method for ergm
tidy(x, conf.int = FALSE, conf.level = 0.95, exponentiate = FALSE, ...)
```

## Arguments

- x
An

`ergm`

object returned from a call to`ergm::ergm()`

.- conf.int
Logical indicating whether or not to include a confidence interval in the tidied output. Defaults to

`FALSE`

.- conf.level
The confidence level to use for the confidence interval if

`conf.int = TRUE`

. Must be strictly greater than 0 and less than 1. Defaults to 0.95, which corresponds to a 95 percent confidence interval.- exponentiate
Logical indicating whether or not to exponentiate the the coefficient estimates. This is typical for logistic and multinomial regressions, but a bad idea if there is no log or logit link. Defaults to

`FALSE`

.- ...
Additional arguments to pass to

`ergm::summary()`

.**Cautionary note**: Misspecified arguments may be silently ignored.

## Value

A tibble::tibble with one row for each coefficient in the exponential random graph model, with columns:

- term
The term in the model being estimated and tested

- estimate
The estimated coefficient

- std.error
The standard error

- mcmc.error
The MCMC error

- p.value
The two-sided p-value
