Fitting Generalized Linear Models

Fits generalized linear models using the same model specification as glm in the stats package, but with a modified default fitting method that provides greater stability for models that may fail to converge using glm.


glm2 1.2.1

  • Changed glm2 to call the fit function without singular.ok when the R version is less than 3.5.0, allowing backwards compatibility to 3.2.0. (Thanks to Paul Bailey for the suggestion)

glm2 1.2

  • glm2 and glm.fit2 now accept singular.ok argument, for compatibility with glm in R 3.5.0.

glm2 1.1.3

  • Removed some examples for compatibility with changes to glm in R 3.5.0.

glm2 1.1.2

  • Pass singular.ok = FALSE to so that singular models will stop with an error.

glm2 1.1.1

  • Extract the qr component correctly.
