Conference Presentations

August 15, 2012 | 0 Comments

I recently gave a talk at the Ecological Society of America (ESA) annual meeting in Portland, OR and a poster presentation at the World Congress of Herpetology meeting in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Both presentations were comparing generalized linear mixed models … Continue reading → [Read more...]

Plotting 95% Confidence Bands in R

July 26, 2012 | 0 Comments

I am comparing estimates from subject-specific GLMMs and population-average GEE models as part of a publication I am working on. As part of this, I want to visualize predictions of each type of model including 95% confidence bands. First I had to ma...

Model Validation: Interpreting Residual Plots

July 18, 2011 | 0 Comments

When conducting any statistical analysis it is important to evaluate how well the model fits the data and that the data meet the assumptions of the model. There are numerous ways to do this and a variety of statistical tests to evaluate deviations from model assumptions. However, there is little ...

I have been starting to analyze some data I have of repeated counts of salamanders from 5 plots over 4 years. I am trying to develop a predictive model of salamander nighttime surface activity as a function of weather variables. The repeated counting l...

Multiple Comparisons for GLMMs using glmer() & glht()

June 14, 2011 | 0 Comments

...that's an example of how to apply multiple comparisons to a generalised linear mixed model using the function glmer from package lme4 & glht() from package multcomp. By the way you see a nice example for visualizing data from a nested sampli...

GLMM and R issues

December 4, 2010 | 0 Comments

I have been trying to run a Generalized Linear Mixed Model (GLMM) for some count data with repeated measures on sub-sampled sites and fixed effects at the site level with covariates at both the sub-plot and time levels.  Plus there are different n...

GLMM revisted

March 5, 2010 | 0 Comments

A short while ago, I reported some discrepancies between the results produced by "lme4" and other R packages as well as Stata. Today I upgraded to the most recent version of "lme4a" and re-ran my model. The error of false convergence disappea...
