Probit.score_factor(params)[source]

Probit model Jacobian for each observation

Parameters
paramsarray_like

The parameters of the model

Returns
score_factorarray_like (nobs,)

The derivative of the loglikelihood function for each observation with respect to linear predictor evaluated at params

Notes

\[\frac{\partial\ln L_{i}}{\partial\beta}=\left[\frac{q_{i}\phi\left(q_{i}x_{i}^{\prime}\beta\right)}{\Phi\left(q_{i}x_{i}^{\prime}\beta\right)}\right]x_{i}\]

for observations \(i=1,...,n\)

Where \(q=2y-1\). This simplification comes from the fact that the normal distribution is symmetric.
