The generalized linear model (GLZ) is a way to make predictions from sets of data. It takes the idea of a general linear model (for example, a linear regression equation) a step further. A general linear model (GLM) is the type of model you probably came across in elementary statistics.

The model is μ = Xb. In generalized linear models, these characteristics are generalized as follows: At each set of values for the predictors, the response has a distribution that can be normal, binomial, Poisson, gamma, or inverse Gaussian, with parameters including a mean μ. A coefficient vector b...

The term generalized linear model (GLIM or GLM) refers to a larger class of models popularized by McCullagh and Nelder (1982, 2nd edition 1989). In these models, the response variable is assumed to follow an exponential family distribution with mean , which is assumed to be some (often nonlinear) function of .

Above I presented models for regression problems, but generalized linear models can also be used for classification problems. In 2-class classification problem, likelihood is defined with Bernoulli distribution, i.e. output is etiher 1 or 0.

Generalized Linear Models Structure Generalized Linear Models (GLMs) A generalized linear model is made up of a linear predictor i = 0 + 1 x 1 i + :::+ p x pi and two functions I a link function that describes how the mean, E (Y i) = i, depends on the linear predictor g( i) = i I a variance function that describes how the variance, var( Y i) depends on the mean

Stroup prefers the term generalized linear mixed model (GLMM), of which GLM is a subtype. GLMMs combine GLMs with mixed models, which allow random effects models (GLMs only allow fixed effects ). However, GLMM is a new approach: GLMMs are still part of the statistical frontier, and not all of the answers about how...

The General Linear Model (GLM) underlies most of the statistical analyses that are used in applied and social research. It is the foundation for the t-test , Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) , regression analysis , and many of the multivariate methods including factor analysis, cluster analysis, multidimensional scaling, discriminant function analysis, canonical correlation, and others.

To see how the algorithm performs, you use the glm() package. The Generalized Linear Model is a collection of models. The basic syntax is:

The generalized linear model expands the general linear model so that the dependent variable is linearly related to the factors and covariates via a specified link function. Moreover, the model allows for the dependent variable to have a non-normal distribution.

A generalized linear model (GLM) expands upon linear regression to include non-normal distributions including binomial and count data. Throughout this course, you will expand your data science toolkit to include GLMs in R.
