Generalized linear models

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Linear models allow the description of a continuous, symmetric response in terms of a linear combination of predictor variables. Generalized linear models extend this framework to a wider range of response types, including categorical, binary, and skewed continuous responses. This allows a common approach to statistical inference in the fitting and testing of such models as well as diagnostic checking.
