Bootstrapping Clustered Data in R using lmeresampler

  title={Bootstrapping Clustered Data in R using lmeresampler},
  author={A. Loy and J. Korobova},
Linear mixed-effects models are commonly used to analyze clustered data structures. There are numerous packages to fit these models in R and conduct likelihood-based inference. The implementation of resampling-based procedures for inference are more limited. In this paper, we introduce the lmeresampler package for bootstrapping nested linear mixed-effects models fit via lme4 or nlme. Bootstrap estimation allows for bias correction, adjusted standard errors and confidence intervals for small… Expand

A Random Effect Block Bootstrap for Clustered Data
This article describes a random effect block bootstrap approach for clustered data that is simple to implement, free of both the distribution and the dependence assumptions of the parametric bootstrap, and is consistent when the mixed model assumptions are valid. Expand
Bootstrapping clustered data
Various bootstraps have been proposed for bootstrapping clustered data from one-way arrays. The simulation results in the literature suggest that some of these methods work quite well in practice;Expand
A Kenward-Roger approximation and parametric bootstrap methods for tests in linear mixed models: The R Package pbkrtest
When testing for reduction of the mean value structure in linear mixed models, it is common to use an asymptotic ?2 test. Such tests can, however, be very poor for small and moderate sample sizes.Expand
Fitting Linear Mixed-Effects Models Using lme4
Maximum likelihood or restricted maximum likelihood (REML) estimates of the parameters in linear mixed-effects models can be determined using the lmer function in the lme4 package for R. As for mostExpand
The Wild Bootstrap for Multilevel Models
The results show that for big sample sizes it always pays off to adopt an agnostic approach as the wild bootstrap outperforms other techniques. Expand
Model Choice and Diagnostics for Linear Mixed-Effects Models Using Statistics on Street Corners
The approach provides a unified framework for diagnosing LME fits and for model selection and is illustrated with the use of this approach on several commonly available datasets. Expand
HLMdiag: A Suite of Diagnostics for Hierarchical Linear Models in R
The tools implemented in HLMdiag for both residual and influence analysis are discussed, including those targeting all aspects and levels of continuous response hierarchical linear models with strictly nested dependence structures fit using the lmer() function in the lme4 package. Expand
Graphical Tools for Detecting Departures from Linear Mixed Model Assumptions and Some Remedial Measures
This work identifies remedial measures for possible violations of the proposed model assumptions, ranging from fine-tuning of the model to the use of elliptically symmetric or skew-elliptical linear mixed models as well as of robust estimation methods. Expand

In regression models, appropriate bootstrap methods for inference robust to heteroskedasticity of unknown form are the wildbootstrap and the pairs bootstrap and simulation results suggest that one specific version of the wild bootstrap outperforms the other versions of theWild bootstraps. Expand
The Wild Bootstrap, Tamed at Last
In this paper we are interested in inference based on heteroskedasticity consistent covariance matrix estimators, for which the appropriate bootstrap is a version of the wild bootstrap. SimulationExpand
