estimates stats reports model-selection statistics, including the Akaike information criterion (AIC) and the Bayesian information criterion (BIC). These measures are appropriate for maximum likelihood models.

If estimates stats is used for a non-likelihood-based model, such as qreg, missing values are reported.


n(#) specifies the N to be used in calculating BIC; see [R] BIC note.
