    GLMs in Life Assurance - using an Expected "framework"

    I work in Life Assurance and the GLM concept is fairly new to us. To date, we have analysed our mortality experience in the following way - Define an Expected mortality table (this might be a standard published table - or an internal table derived from a prior analysis) - This table...

    Co-efficient interpretation in Gamma Regression Model

    Hi Guys, I am trying to fit a gamma regression model using a log link model. Now, I get a negative co-efficient for one of my IVs. What is the best way to interpret this? Should I exponentiate this co-efficient? What does this mean in that case? Thanks for the help.

    Hi everyone, I'm trying to figure out how to run an appropriate comparison for clutch sizes of birds. Ultimately, I want to compare clutch size of the same species between 2 sites with 2 levels (good, poor). First I need to sort out if there were differences among years in each site to be able...

    Transforming z to t values (GLM, different error distributions)

    Hi, I am comparing behavioural data collected at two populations. Generalised linear models were used with a behavioural trait as a response variable. The problem is that due to the error distributions, different families were specified for each dataset: Gaussian and Binomial family...

    Hi there, I have a question regarding univariate GLM models. I have entered in three factors and as a covariates and asked for estimated means comparisons. I wasn't interested in interactions at first, I just wanted to see (a) one of my factors predicted the DV and (b) if my estimated means...
