# statsmodels.regression.mixed_linear_model.MixedLM.get_scale¶

MixedLM.get_scale(fe_params, cov_re, vcomp)[source]

Returns the estimated error variance based on given estimates of the slopes and random effects covariance matrix.

Parameters: fe_params (array-like) – The regression slope estimates cov_re (2d array-like) – Estimate of the random effects covariance matrix vcomp (array-like) – Estimate of the variance components scale – The estimated error variance. float
