8.3.1 Example 1: Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP)
8.3.2 Example 2: Bladder Cancer
In this chapter, we show how the multiple linear regression model and the logistic regression model can both be subsumed within a more general modelling framework, the generalized linear model (GLM), and how the GLM then leads to more appropriate models for response variables that cannot (and should not) be modelled by the ...
