method

GEEResults.qic(scale=None)[source]

Returns the QIC and QICu information criteria.

For families with a scale parameter (e.g. Gaussian), provide as the scale argument the estimated scale from the largest model under consideration.

If the scale parameter is not provided, the estimated scale parameter is used. Doing this does not allow comparisons of QIC values between models.
