Dear Rlist,

We are working with library(Design) & R 2.2.1//

When using the following fitted model:

knots <- 5

lrm.1 <- lrm(X8~rcs(X1,5),x=T,y=T)

X8 (binary 0/1 vector)

X1, X2 explantory variables

We would like to set the probability of X8=1 to zero when the X2

variable is smaller than a defined threshold,

e.g. X2<50, because the X1 variable is not correct (contains more

errors) anymore when X2<50.

How could we define this in the model smoothly without changing the

values of the variables?

We keep in mind that setting thresholds in not a good solution because

then information is lost. Therefore we also tested the following model.

However, towards operational methods or techniques setting thresholds is

simplifying relationships. Especially in this case were we saw that X1

could contain more errors when X2 < 50.

lrm.1 <- lrm(X8~rcs(X1,5)+ rcs(X2,5),x=T,y=T)

Thanks a lot for feedback & discussion,

Jan
