predict.lmList {nlme}  R Documentation 
If the grouping factor corresponding to object
is included
in newdata
, the data frame is partitioned according to the
grouping factor levels; else, newdata
is repeated for all
lm
components. The predictions and, optionally, the standard
errors for the predictions, are obtained for each lm
component of object
, using the corresponding element of the
partitioned newdata
, and arranged into a list with as many
components as object
, or combined into a single vector or data
frame (if se.fit=TRUE
).
## S3 method for class 'lmList' predict(object, newdata, subset, pool, asList, se.fit, ...)
object 
an object inheriting from class 
newdata 
an optional data frame to be used for obtaining the
predictions. All variables used in the 
subset 
an optional character or integer vector naming the

asList 
an optional logical value. If 
pool 
an optional logical value indicating whether a pooled
estimate of the residual standard error should be used. Default is

se.fit 
an optional logical value indicating whether pointwise
standard errors should be computed along with the
predictions. Default is 
... 
some methods for this generic require additional arguments. None are used in this method. 
a list with components given by the predictions (and, optionally, the
standard errors for the predictions) from each lm
component of object
, a vector with the predictions from all
lm
components of object
, or a data frame with columns
given by the predictions and their corresponding standard errors.
