## Response Probabilities for Generalized Linear Models

### Description

This is the method add_probs uses if the model fit is an object of class glm. Probabilities are determined through simulation, using the same method as add_pi.glm. Currently, only logistic, Poisson, Quasipoisson, and Gamma models are supported.

### Usage

## S3 method for class 'glm'
df,
fit,
q,
name = NULL,
yhatName = "pred",
comparison = "<",
nSims = 2000,
...
)


### Arguments

 df A data frame of new data. fit An object of class glm. Predictions are made with this object. q A double. A quantile of the response distribution. name NULL or a string. If NULL, probabilities automatically will be named by add_probs(), otherwise, the probabilities will be named name in the returned dataframe. yhatName A string. Name of the vector of predictions. comparison A character vector of length one. If comparison = "<", then Pr(Y|X < q) is calculated. Any comparison is allowed in Poisson regression, but only certain comparisons may be made in Logistic regression. See the Details section. nSims A positive integer. Controls the number of simulated draws to make if the model is Poisson. ... Additional arguments.

### Details

Any of the five comparisons may be made for a Poisson, quasipoisson, or Gamma model: comparison = "<", ">", "=", "<=", or ">=". For logistic regression, the comparison statement must be equivalent to Pr(Y|x = 0) or Pr(Y|x = 1).

If add_probs is called on a Poisson, quasiPoisson or Gamma model, a simulation is performed using arm::sim.

If add_probs is called on a logistic model, the fitted probabilities are used directly (no simulation is required).

If add_probs is called on a Gaussian GLM, the returned probabilities are identical to those given by add_probs.lm. In this case, the comparisons < and <= are identical (likewise for > and >=). If the comparison = is used in the Gaussian GLM, an informative error is returned.

### Value

A dataframe, df, with predicted values and probabilities attached.

add_ci.glm for confidence intervals for glm objects, add_pi.glm for prediction intervals of glm objects, and add_quantile.glm for response quantiles of glm objects.

### Examples

# Fit a Poisson model
fit <- glm(dist ~ speed, data = cars, family = "poisson")

# Determine the probability that a new dist is less than 20, given
# the Poisson model.

# Determine the probability that a new dist is greater than 20,
# given the Poisson model.
add_probs(cars, fit, q = 30, comparison = ">")

# Determine the probability that a new dist is greater than or
# equal to 20, given the Poisson model.
add_probs(cars, fit, q = 30, comparison = ">=")

# Fit a logistic model
fit2 <- glm(I(dist > 30) ~ speed, data = cars, family = "binomial")
add_probs(cars, fit2, q = 0, comparison = "=")
add_probs(cars, fit2, q = 1, comparison = "=")
