Some LM and GLM Variants

  • Thomas W. Yee
Part of the Springer Series in Statistics book series (SSS)


This chapter deals with several useful variants of LMs and binomial GLMs. For example, LMs have been generalized to varying coefficient models, seemingly unrelated regressions (SUR), the Tobit model (censored LM), and AR(1) time series model (correlated data over time). And for logistic regression, this can be extended to bivariate binary responses, a two-stage sequential binomial process, and double-exponential family models.
