The function extracts the model formula from objects of class "rma".

# S3 method for rma
formula(x, type="mods", ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class "rma".

type

the formula which should be returned; either "mods" (default), "yi" (in case argument yi was used to specify a formula), or "scale" (only for location-scale models).

...

other arguments.

Value

The requested formula.

Examples

### copy BCG vaccine data into 'dat'
dat <- dat.bcg

### calculate log risk ratios and corresponding sampling variances
dat <- escalc(measure="RR", ai=tpos, bi=tneg, ci=cpos, di=cneg, data=dat,
              slab=paste(author, ", ", year, sep=""))

### mixed-effects meta-regression model
res <- rma(yi, vi, mods = ~ ablat + alloc, data=dat)
formula(res, type="mods")
#> ~ablat + alloc
#> <environment: 0x5612ce30d880>

### specify moderators via 'yi' argument
res <- rma(yi ~ ablat + alloc, vi, data=dat)
formula(res, type="yi")
#> yi ~ ablat + alloc
#> <environment: 0x5612cd34ee40>
