An Implementation of the Bridge Distribution with Logit-Link as in Wang and Louis (2003)

An implementation of the bridge distribution with logit-link in R. In Wang and Louis (2003) , such a univariate bridge distribution was derived as the distribution of the random intercept that 'bridged' a marginal logistic regression and a conditional logistic regression. The conditional and marginal regression coefficients are a scalar multiple of each other. Such is not the case if the random intercept distribution was Gaussian.


CHANGES IN bridgedist VERSION 0.1


  • first version of bridgedist: it covers the most popular case (Logit-Link) in Wang and Louis 2003, offering the familiar p/d/q/r functions for the bridge distribution


  • Github for devel; CRAN for releases.
