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.

# 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: Mispecified 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
