Karlson-Holm-Breen method for comparing probit coefficients

Usage

khb(X, y, z)

Arguments

X
data frame comprising independent variables including confounding variable.
y
vector of dependent variable.
z
character string giving the name of the confounding variable in X.

Description

Significance test for confounding; that is, the difference between regression coefficients from same-sample nested logit and probit models. The test procedure follows Karlson et al (2012), Section 3.4.
