Contents Notes
"An Introduction to Generalized Linear Models, Second Edition initiates intermediate students of statistics, and the many other disciplines that use statistics, in the practical use of these models and methods. The new edition incorporates many of the important developments of the last decade, including those in survival analysis, nominal and ordinal logistic regression, generalized estimating equations, and multi-level models. It also includes modern methods for checking model adequacy." "The text assumes a working knowledge of basic statistical concepts and methods and an acquaintance with calculus and matrix algebra. It emphasizes graphical methods for exploratory data analysis, visualizing numerical optimization, and plotting residuals, and now includes examples from a wider range of application areas, including business, medicine, agriculture, biology, engineering, and the social sciences. Data sets and outline solutions to exercises are available on the internet."--Jacket.
