The 1st variation of this article has bought over 19,600 copies. even though, using statistical tools for express information has elevated dramatically in recent times, quite for functions within the biomedical and social sciences. A moment variation of the introductory model of the e-book will go well with it well.

2 on chronic medical conditions. estimated in order to calculate to fitted values θi (for example, see Agresti 1990, page 479). 5) is, in fact, the usual chi-squared goodness of fit statistic for count data which is often written as X2 = (oi − ei )2 ∼ χ2 (m), ei EXAMPLES 23 where oi denotes the observed frequency and ei denotes the corresponding expected frequency. In this case oi = Yi , ei = θi and ri2 = X 2 . 169)2 + . . 759. This value is consistent with ri2 being an observation from the central chisquared distribution with m = 23 + 26 − 1 = 48 degrees of freedom.

1. The alternative approach using Bayesian analysis is introduced in Chapter 12. In this book numerical and graphical methods are used, where appropriate, to complement calculus and algebraic methods of optimization. 4 Residuals and model checking Firstly, consider residuals for a model involving the Normal distribution. Suppose that the response variable Yi is modelled by E(Yi ) = µi ; Yi ∼ N(µi , σ 2 ). 34 MODEL FITTING The fitted values are the estimates µi . Residuals can be defined as yi − µi and the approximate standardized residuals as ri = (yi − µi )/σ, where σ is an estimate of the unknown parameter σ.

The next example illustrates steps of the model fitting process with continuous data. 3 are the birthweights (in grams) and estimated gestational ages (in weeks) of 12 male and female babies born in a certain hospital. The mean ages are almost the same for both sexes but the mean birthweight for boys is higher than the mean birthweight for girls. 2. There is a linear trend of birthweight increasing with gestational age and the girls tend to weigh less than the boys of the same gestational age. The question of interest is whether the rate of increase of birthweight with gestational age is the same for boys and girls.
