Exploring Interaction in Generalized Linear Models

  • Published : 2005.02.28


We explore the structure and usefulness of the 3-D residual plot as a basic tool for dealing with interaction in generalized linear models. If predictors have an interaction effect, the shape obtained by rotating the 3-D residual plot will show its presence. To illustrate the use of this plot as an aid to exploring the interaction, we present an example of a binomial regression model using simulated data.
