Variance-Covariance Matrix in glm

July 20, 2007

(This article was first published on Quantitative Ecology, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

This is a small function Venables and Ripley provide in their MASS book. You don’t need it anymore because vcov() has a method for the glm class. However, it is useful to see how to extract bits from a fitted model object.

#return the variance-covariance matrix of a glm object
#from p. 188 in Venables and Ripley. 2002.
#Modern Applied Statistics With S. Springer. New York.
so <- summary(obj,corr=F)
so$dispersion * so$cov.unscaled
