`find_variables.Rd`

Returns a list with the names of all variables, including response value and random effects.

find_variables(x, effects = c("all", "fixed", "random"), component = c("all", "conditional", "zi", "zero_inflated", "dispersion", "instruments"), flatten = FALSE)

x | A fitted model. |
---|---|

effects | Should variables for fixed effects, random effects or both be returned? Only applies to mixed models. May be abbreviated. |

component | Should all predictor variables, predictor variables for the conditional model, the zero-inflated part of the model, the dispersion term or the instrumental variables be returned? Applies to models with zero-inflated and/or dispersion formula, or to models with instrumental variable (so called fixed-effects regressions). May be abbreviated. |

flatten | Logical, if |

A list with (depending on the model) following elements (character vectors):

`response`

, the name of the response variable`conditional`

, the names of the predictor variables from the*conditional*model (as opposed to the zero-inflated part of a model)`random`

, the names of the random effects (grouping factors)`zero_inflated`

, the names of the predictor variables from the*zero-inflated*part of the model`zero_inflated_random`

, the names of the random effects (grouping factors)`dispersion`

, the name of the dispersion terms`instruments`

, the names of instrumental variables

The difference to `find_terms`

is that `find_variables()`

returns each variable name only once, while `find_terms()`

may return a
variable multiple times in case of transformations or when arithmetic expressions
were used in the formula.
