AN EXTENSION OF THE AID TECHNIQUE IN GENERALIZED LINEAR MODELS

Maria Cecília Mendes BARRETO[1]

Clarice Garcia Borges DEMÉTRIO[2]

§    ABSTRACT: Since Clustering technique for means can be inadequate with non-Gaussian data, the AID(Automatic Interaction Detection) algorithm is extended considering as measure of homogeneity of groups a statistics based on the deviance function. The technique is applied in an example with binomial data.

§    KEYWORDS: AID; Clustering analysis; generalized linear models; deviance function.
