BIOST 570 Advanced Regression Methods for Independent Data (3) Covers linear models, generalized linear and non-linear regression, and models. Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Bayesian and Frequentist Regression Methods (Springer Series in Statistics). Generally: the idea is to use a model building strategy with some criteria (\(\chi^2\)-tests, AIC, BIC, ROC, AUC) to find the middle ground between an underspecified model and an overspecified model. Another strategy for model building. 5, 6 Undetected batch effects can have major impact on subsequent conclusions in both unsupervised and supervised analysis. 1. p(k) &=& 1-(1-\lambda)^k\\ For theoretical reasons - that is, the researcher wants to estimate a model based on a known theoretical relationship between the response and predictors. The summary contains the following elements: number of observations used in the fit, maximum absolute value of first derivative of log likelihood, model likelihood ratio chi2, d.f., P-value, \(c\) index (area under ROC curve), Somers’ Dxy, Goodman-Kruskal gamma, Kendall’s tau-a rank correlations between predicted probabilities and observed response, the Nagelkerke \(R^2\) index, the Brier score computed with respect to Y \(>\) its lowest level, the \(g\)-index, \(gr\) (the \(g\)-index on the odds ratio scale), and \(gp\) (the \(g\)-index on the probability scale using the same cutoff used for the Brier score). Model building is definitely an ``art." However, the logit link (logistic regression) is only one of a variety of models that we can use. With logistic regression, we don’t have residuals, so we don’t have a value like \(R^2\). p-value &=& P(\chi^2_6 \geq 9.1)= 1 - pchisq(9.1, 6) = 0.1680318 augment contains the same number of rows as number of observations. \[\begin{eqnarray*} \end{eqnarray*}\], \[\begin{eqnarray*} &=& \mbox{deviance}_{reduced} - \mbox{deviance}_{full}\\ To build a model (model selection). \beta_1 &=& \mathrm{logit}(p(x+1)) - \mathrm{logit}(p(x))\\ \end{eqnarray*}\], \[\begin{eqnarray*} -2 \ln \bigg( \frac{L(p_0)}{L(\hat{p})} \bigg) \sim \chi^2_1 Example 5.3 Consider the example on smoking and 20-year mortality (case) from section 3.4 of Regression Methods in Biostatistics, pg 52-53. \mbox{young OR} &=& e^{0.2689 + 0.2177} = 1.626776\\ One idea is to start with an empty model and adding the best available variable at each iteration, checking for needs for transformations.
