Generalized Linear Models in R

Let’s take a look at the generalized linear models in R.

Generalized linear models (GLMs)

GLMs were first proposed by Nelder and Wedderburn in the early 1970s, and (McCulloch & Nedler 1983)McCulloch, P. & Nelder, J. Generalized Linear Models. Chapman & Hall 1983. is the standard reference. GLMs have the following three components:

  • A linear predictor.
  • A variance function.
  • A link function.
