?Hello R Experts,

I am trying to implement the Archer-Lemeshow GOF Test for survey data on a logistic regression model using the survey package based upon an R Help Archive post that I found where Dr. Thomas Lumley advised how to do it: http://r.789695.n4.nabble.com/Goodness-of-t-tests-for-Complex-Survey-Logistic-Regression-td4668233.html

Everything is going well until I get to the point where I have to add the objects 'r' and 'g' as variables to the data frame by either using the transform function or the update function to update the svrepdesign object.  The log. regression model involved uses a subset of data and some of the values in the data frame are NA, so that is affecting my ability to add 'r' and 'g' as variables; I am getting an error because I only have 8397 rows for the new variables and 16197 in the data frame and svrepdesign object.  I am not sure how to overcome this error.

The following is a MRE:

##Archer Lemeshow Goodness of Fit Test for Complex Survey Data with Logistic Regression


data <- getURL("https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cbenjamin1821/careertech-ed/master/elsq1adj.csv")
elsq1ch <- read.csv(text = data)

#Specifying the svyrepdesign object which applies the BRR weights
elsq1ch_brr<-svrepdesign(variables = elsq1ch[,1:16], repweights = elsq1ch[,18:217], weights = elsq1ch[,17], combined.weights = TRUE, type = "BRR")

##Resetting baseline levels for predictors
elsq1ch_brr <- update( elsq1ch_brr , F1HIMATH = relevel(F1HIMATH,"PreAlg or Less") )
elsq1ch_brr <- update( elsq1ch_brr , BYINCOME = relevel(BYINCOME,"0-25K") )
elsq1ch_brr <- update( elsq1ch_brr , F1RACE = relevel(F1RACE,"White") )
elsq1ch_brr <- update( elsq1ch_brr , F1SEX = relevel(F1SEX,"Male") )
elsq1ch_brr <- update( elsq1ch_brr , F1RTRCC = relevel(F1RTRCC,"Academic") )

#Log. Reg. model-all curric. concentrations including F1RTRCC as a predictor
allCC <- svyglm(formula=F3ATTAINB~F1PARED+BYINCOME+F1RACE+F1SEX+F1RGPP2+F1HIMATH+F1RTRCC,family="binomial",design=elsq1ch_brr,subset=BYSCTRL==1&G10COHRT==1,na.action=na.omit)

#Recommendations from Lumley (from R Help Archive) on implementing the Archer Lemeshow GOF test
r <- residuals(allCC, type="response")
g<- cut(f, c(-Inf, quantile(f,  (1:9)/10, Inf)))

# now create a new design object with r and g added as variables
#This is the area where I am having problems as my model involves a subset and some values are NA as well
#I am also not sure if I am naming/specifying the new variables of r and g properly
elsq1ch_brr <- update(elsq1ch_brr,tag=g,tag=r)
decilemodel<- svyglm(r~g, design=newdesign)
regTermTest(decilemodel, ~g)
#is the F-adjusted mean residual test from the Archer Lemeshow paper

Thank you,
