Modelling and Analysis of Cross-Sectional Data: A Review of Univariate Generalized Linear Models

  • Ludwig Fahrmeir

Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


The material in this chapter provides an introduction to univariate generalized linear models and serves as a basis for the following chapters, which contain extensions, e.g., to multivariate, nonparametric, random effects, or dynamic models. It is not intended to replace a deeper study of detailed expositions like that in McCullagh & Nelder (1989) or, with focus on the GLIM package, that in Aitkin, Anderson, Francis & Hinde (1989). Shorter introductions are given, e.g., by Dobson (1989), Firth (1991), and Fahrmeir, Hamerle & Tutz (1996). Collett (1991) focuses on modelling of binary data and discusses practical aspects in more detail.
