FixedEffectValues (CovariateModel)

Values for initial estimates of fixed effects in CovariateModel object

Description

The FixedEffectValues property is a structure containing one field for each fixed effect in the Expression property of a CovariateModel object. Each field contains the value of the initial estimate for a fixed effect.

Tip

You must set this property before using the CovariateModel object as input to sbionlmefit or sbionlmefitsa. Use the constructDefaultFixedEffectValues method to create a structure of fixed-effect initial estimate values, set to a default of zero. Then edit the structure and use it to modify this property.
