The function combines terms from a regression model, and replaces the terms with a single row in the output table. The p-value is calculated using stats::anova().

combine_terms(x, formula_update, label = NULL, quiet = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

a tbl_regression object

formula_update

formula update passed to the stats::update. This updated formula is used to construct a reduced model, and is subsequently passed to stats::anova() to calculate the p-value for the group of removed terms. See the stats::update help file for proper syntax. function's formula.= argument

label

Option string argument labeling the combined rows

quiet

Logical indicating whether to print messages in console. Default is FALSE

...

Additional arguments passed to stats::anova

Value

tbl_regression object

Example Output
