Dear R list,  

From the lrm() binary logistic model we derived the G2 value or the likelihood-ratio chi-squared statistic given as L.R. model, in the output of the lrm().    

How can this value be penalized for non-linearity (we used splines in the lrm function)?  

lrm.iRVI <- lrm(arson ~ rcs(iRVI,5),

This didn’t work properly.    

The aim is to obtain a value that can be used to compare the goodness of fit of the different univariate binary logistic models.  

(The lower the value, the better the fit)    

Kind regards,
