Build regression model from a set of candidate predictor variables by entering and removing predictors based on akaike information criterion, in a stepwise manner until there is no variable left to enter or remove any more.

blr_step_aic_both(model, details = FALSE, ...)

# S3 method for blr_step_aic_both
plot(x, text_size = 3, ...)

Arguments

model

An object of class lm.

details

Logical; if TRUE, details of variable selection will be printed on screen.

...

Other arguments.

x

An object of class blr_step_aic_both.

text_size

size of the text in the plot.

Value

blr_step_aic_both returns an object of class "blr_step_aic_both". An object of class "blr_step_aic_both" is a list containing the following components:

candidates

candidate predictor variables

predictors

variables added/removed from the model

method

addition/deletion

aics
