The marginal fitted values are calculated using the following equation.

Term | Description |
---|---|

the vector of the new settings for the fixed effect terms | |

the estimated coefficients for the fixed effect terms |

The standard error of the marginal fitted values in the mixed model depend on the test method for the fixed effects. For both methods, the standard error equals the square root of the variance for the fitted value.

The confidence interval for the marginal mean response at the new setting is:

is the marginal fit. is the standard error of the fit.

The degrees of freedom use this formula for the marginal case:

The marginal prediction interval is:
