Deviance and Chi-squared Goodness-of-Fit Test for Poisson Models

Description

Deviance and Chi-squared goodness-of-fit test of the null hypothesis that poisson variance is appropriate to model the conditional dispersion of the data, given a particular model.

Usage

poisGOF(obj)

Arguments

obj

A model object of class glm (with family=poisson).

Value

A 2x2 data frame with rows representing the different types of statistics (Deviance and Chi-squared) and columns representing the test statistic and p-value.

counts <- c(18,17,15,20,10,20,25,13,12)
outcome <- gl(3,1,9)
treatment <- gl(3,3)
print(d.AD <- data.frame(treatment, outcome, counts, stringsAsFactors=TRUE))
glm.D93 <- glm(counts ~ outcome + treatment, family=poisson())
