NRES / STAT 803 Week 5

Generalized Linear Models

In this week we’ll look at breaking the assumptions that the error distribution is normal and the relationship between E(Y) and BX is linear.

Learning Objectives

  • Use the inverse link function to interpret coefficients in a GLM.
  • Recognize binomial and Poisson distributed responses
  • Evaluate the goodness of fit of a GLM by examining residual plots and the residual deviance.
