anova.negbin: Likelihood Ratio Tests for Negative Binomial GLMs


Method function to perform sequential likelihood ratio tests for Negative Binomial generalized linear models.


# S3 method for negbin
anova(object, ..., test = "Chisq")



Fitted model object of class "negbin", inheriting from classes "glm" and "lm", specifying a Negative Binomial fitted GLM. Typically the output of glm.nb().


Zero or more additional fitted model objects of class "negbin". They should form a nested sequence of models, but need not be specified in any particular order.


Argument to match the test argument of anova.glm. Ignored (with a warning if changed) if a sequence of two or more Negative Binomial fitted model objects is specified, but possibly used if only one object is specified.


This function is a method for the generic function anova() for class "negbin". It can be invoked by calling anova(x) for an object x of the appropriate class, or directly by calling anova.negbin(x) regardless of the class of the object.
