Generalized Linear Models: An Applied Approach
Generalized Linear Models (GLM) is a general class of statistical models that includes many commonly used models as special cases. For example, the class of GLMs that includes linear regression, analysis of variance and analysis of covariance, is a special case of GLIMs. GLIMs also include log-linear models for analysis of contingency tables,...
Generalized Linear Models (GLM) is a general class of statistical models that includes many commonly used models as special cases. For example, the class of GLMs that includes linear regression, analysis of variance and analysis of covariance, is a special case of GLIMs. GLIMs also include log-linear models for analysis of contingency tables, prohib/logit regression, Poisson regression and much more. This book gives an overview of GLMs and presents practical examples of their use. Although the approach is applied, the basic theory of GLMs is presented in a compact way. The exponential family of distributions is discussed as well as the Maxium Likelihood estimation and ways of assessing the fit of the model. Response variables as continuous variables, as binary/binomial variables, as counts and as ordinal response variables are discussed. There are many practical examples using the Genmod software of the SAS package. Theory and applications of a more complex nature, like quasi-likelihood procedures, repeated measures models, mixed models and analysis of survival data is also covered.
