Gibbs, SAS Technical Support I OWA S TATE U NIVERSITY Department of Animal Science GLIMMIX overview ◆ PROC GLIMMIX fits statistical models to data with correlations or nonconstant variability and where the response is not necessarily normally distributed. ◆ These models are known as generalized linear mixed models (GLMM). ◆ The GLMMs, like linear mixed models, assume normal (Gaussian) random effects. ◆ Conditional on these random effects, I OWA S TATE U NIVERSITY Department of Animal Science GLIMMIX overview ◆ The exponential family comprises many of the elementary discrete and continuous distributions and include: ■ Binary, ● The experiment consists of n repeated trials. ● Each trial can result in just two possible outcomes. We call one of these outcomes a success and the other, a failure. ● The probability of success, denoted by P , is the same on every trial. ● The trials are independent  that is, the outcome on one trial does not affect the outcome on other trials. ■ Binomial, I OWA S TATE U NIVERSITY Department of Animal Science GLIMMIX overview ◆ The exponential family comprises many of the elementary discrete and continuous distributions and include: ■ Binomial, ● Situations in which the coin for example is biased, so that heads and tails have different probabilities. ● The probability distributions for which there are just two possible outcomes with fixed probability summing to one. ● These distributions are called are called binomial distributions ■ Poisson, and ■ Negative binomial distributions, I OWA S TATE U NIVERSITY Department of Animal Science GLIMMIX overview ◆ The exponential family comprises many of the elementary discrete and continuous distributions and include: ■ Poisson, ■ The poisson distribution is an appropriate model for count data....
