Hello everyone,

I have a question regarding the Generalized Linear Model platform when we use a binomial distribution.

The response variable can be specify using two continuous columns as Y in this order: the count of the number of successes, and the count of the number of trials.

What if, for some reasons, the number of successes is greater than the number of trials for a few rows (e.g. successes= 60, trials = 50)? Is it automatically corrected during the analysis (i.e. the number of trials is updated -> 60)? Or should it be absolutely corrected before launching the analysis because it can lead to mistakes during the calculations?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

I will answer the JMP question. @statman answered the data question!

JMP accepts the data in only one way: first the number of event, then the total trials. There is no correction. JMP assumes that your data is correct.

Learn it once, use it forever!

Re: Generalized Linear Model - Question for binomial distribution

*automatically* correct the number of trials for all rows, but obviously you have an issue with data collection or entry. If you have more successes than trials, what other data collection/entry errors are in the data set? I would correct these before proceeding with any analysis.
