The New Statistics with R

Oxford University Press

Generalized linear mixed-effects models (GLMMs) are introduced as a combination of the mixed-effects models and GLMs met in earlier chapters. The additional challenges of the analysis are explored and the differences in the R software functions and its output are explained. Model comparison and selection can be done using information criteria or likelihood ratio tests. In addition to the AIC and BIC the DIC was devised for use with multilevel models. The options for assessing how well the model assumptions are met are reduced relative to linear models and GLMs but the most accessible current options are demonstrated.

Keywords:   GLMMs, deviance information criterion, DIC, AIC, BIC, multilevel models, model assumptions
