• A general framework that incorporates a wide variety of statistical techniques. Different variable types, for example, continuous or discrete, can be incorporated into the GLM framework. The GLM includes (a) a bivariate form, (b) a simple multivariate form, and (c) a full multivariate form. The simplest form of GLM is the bivariate model, Y = ßX + e, which includes one dependent variable (Y) and one quantitative or one two-group categorical independent variable (X). In the equation just shown, Y is the dependent variable, X is the independent variable, â is the coefficient expressing the relationship between X and Y, and e is the error or probabilistic component. The bivariate GLM includes techniques such as simple regression and two-group analysis of variance (ANOVA). The simple ... • [0-9]
