The original purpose ofthe book was to present a unified theoretical and conceptual framework for statistical modelling in a way that was accessible to undergraduate students and researchers in other fields. This new edition has been expanded to include nominal (or multinomial) and ordinal logistic regression, survival analysis and analysis oflongitudinal and clustered data. Although these topics do not fall strictly within the definition of generalized linear models, the underlying principles and methods are very similar and their inclusion is consistent with the original purpose ofthe book. The new edition relies on numerical methods more than the previous edition did. Some ofthe calculations can be performed with a spreadsheet while others require statistical software. There is an emphasis on graphical methods for exploratory data analysis, visualizing numerical optimization (for example, ofthe likelihood function) and plotting residuals to check the adequacy of models. Introduction 1.1 Background This book is designed to introduce the reader to generalized linear models; these provide a unifying framework for many commonly used statistical techniques. They also illustrate the ideas ofstatistical modelling. The reader is assumed to have some familiarity with statistical principles and methods. In particular, understanding the concepts ofestimation, sampling distributions and hypothesis testing is necessary. Experience in the use oft-tests, analysis ofv ariance, simple linear regression and chi-squared tests of independence for two-dimensional contingency tables is assumed. In addition, some knowledge ofmatrix algebra and calculus is required. The reader will find it necessary to have access to statistical computing facilities. Many statistical programs, languages or packages can now perform the analyses discussed in this book. Often, however, they do so with a different program or procedure for each type of analysis so that the unifying structure is not apparent. Some programs or languages which have procedures consistent with the approach used in this book are: Stata, S-PLUS, Glim, Genstat and SYSTAT. This list is not comprehensive as appropriate modules are continually being added to other programs. In addition, anyone working through this book may find it helpful to be able to use mathematical software that can perform matrix algebra, differentiation and iterative calculations. 1.2 Scope The statistical methods considered in this g儒龙 联系QQ：526781618 淘宝旺旺：跟朝流走 有需要的欢迎联系！专业代购电子书 ebook 英文电子书代购
