CompactGeneralizedLinearModel
Compact generalized linear regression model class
Description
CompactGeneralizedLinearModel
is a compact version of a full
generalized linear regression model object GeneralizedLinearModel
. Because a compact model does not store the input
data used to fit the model or information related to the fitting process, a
CompactGeneralizedLinearModel
object consumes less memory than a
GeneralizedLinearModel
object. You can still use a compact model to
predict responses using new input data, but some GeneralizedLinearModel
object functions do not work with a compact model.
Creation
Create a CompactGeneralizedLinearModel
model from a full, trained
GeneralizedLinearModel
model by using compact
.
fitglm
returns CompactGeneralizedLinearModel
when you work with tall arrays, and returns GeneralizedLinearModel
when
you work with inmemory tables and arrays.

.
For details, see Coefficient Standard Errors and Confidence Intervals.
Data Types: single

CoefficientNames
— Coefficient names

Data Types: cell
Coefficients
— Coefficient values
table
This property is readonly.

Coefficients
contains one row for each coefficient and these
columns:
Estimate
— Estimated coefficient valueSE
— Standard error of the estimatetStat
— tstatistic for a twosided test with the null hypothesis that the coefficient is zeropValue

using dot notation. For example, obtain the estimated coefficient vector in the model
mdl
:
beta = mdl.Coefficients.Estimate
Data Types: table

Summary Statistics
Deviance
— Deviance of fit
numeric value
This property is readonly.
Deviance of the fit, specified as a numeric value. The deviance is useful for comparing two models when one model is a special case of the other model. The difference between the deviance of the two models has a chisquare distribution with degrees of freedom equal to the difference in the number of estimated parameters between the two models. For more information, see Deviance.
Data Types: single
 double
DFE
— Degrees of freedom for error
positive integer
This property is readonly.
Degrees of freedom for the error (residuals), equal to the number of observations minus the number of estimated coefficients, specified as a positive integer.
Data Types: double
Dispersion
— Scale factor of variance of response
numeric scalar
This property is readonly.
Scale factor of the variance of the response, specified as a numeric scalar.
If the 'DispersionFlag'
namevalue pair argument of
fitglm
or stepwiseglm
is
true
, then the function estimates the
Dispersion
scale factor in computing the variance of the
response. The variance of the response equals the theoretical variance multiplied by the
scale factor.
For example, the variance function for the binomial distribution is
p(1–p)/n, where
p is the probability parameter and n is the
sample size parameter. If Dispersion
is near 1
,
the variance of the data appears to agree with the theoretical variance of the binomial
distribution. If Dispersion
is larger than 1
, the
data set is “overdispersed” relative to the binomial distribution.
Data Types: double
DispersionEstimated
— Flag to indicate use of dispersion scale factor
logical value
This property is readonly.
Flag to indicate whether fitglm
used the Dispersion
scale factor to compute standard errors for the coefficients in Coefficients.SE
, specified as a logical value. If DispersionEstimated
is false
, fitglm
used the theoretical value of the variance.
DispersionEstimated
can befalse
only for the binomial and Poisson distributions.Set
DispersionEstimated
by setting the'DispersionFlag'
namevalue pair argument offitglm
orstepwiseglm
.
Data Types: logical
LogLikelihood
— Loglikelihood
numeric value
This property is readonly.
Loglikelihood of the model distribution at the response values, specified as a numeric value. The mean is fitted from the model, and other parameters are estimated as part of the model fit.
Data Types: single
 double
ModelCriterion
— Criterion for model comparison
structure
This property is readonly.
Criterion for model comparison, specified as a structure with these fields:
AIC
— Akaike information criterion.AIC = –2*logL + 2*m
, wherelogL
is the loglikelihood andm
is the number of estimated parameters.AICc
— Akaike information criterion corrected for the sample size.AICc = AIC + (2*m*(m + 1))/(n – m – 1)
, wheren
is the number of observations.BIC
— Bayesian information criterion.BIC = –2*logL + m*log(n)
.CAIC
— Consistent Akaike information criterion.CAIC = –2*logL + m*(log(n) + 1)
.
Information criteria are model selection tools that you can use to compare multiple models fit to the same data. These criteria are likelihoodbased measures of model fit that include a penalty for complexity (specifically, the number of parameters). Different information criteria are distinguished by the form of the penalty.
When you compare multiple models, the model with the lowest information criterion value is the bestfitting model. The bestfitting model can vary depending on the criterion used for model comparison.
To obtain any of the criterion values as a scalar, index into the property using dot
notation. For example, obtain the AIC value aic
in the model
mdl
:
aic = mdl.ModelCriterion.AIC

More About
Deviance
Deviance is a generalization of the residual sum of squares. It measures the goodness of fit compared to a saturated model.
The deviance of a model M_{1} is twice the difference between the loglikelihood of the model M_{1} and the saturated model M_{s}. A saturated model is a model with the maximum number of parameters that you can estimate.
For example, if you have n observations (y_{i}, i = 1, 2, ..., n) with potentially different values for X_{i}^{T}β, then you can define a saturated model with n parameters. Let L(b,y) denote the maximum value of the likelihood function for a model with the parameters b. Then the deviance of the model M_{1} is
$$2\left(\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{1},y\right)\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{S},y\right)\right),$$
where b_{1} and b_{s} contain the estimated parameters for the model M_{1} and the saturated model, respectively. The deviance has a chisquared distribution with n – p degrees of freedom, where n is the number of parameters in the saturated model and p is the number of parameters in the model M_{1}.
Assume you have two different generalized linear regression models M_{1} and M_{2}, and M_{1} has a subset of the terms in M_{2}. You can assess the fit of the models by comparing their deviances D_{1} and D_{2}. The difference of the deviances is
$$\begin{array}{l}D={D}_{2}{D}_{1}=2\left(\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{2},y\right)\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{S},y\right)\right)+2\left(\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{1},y\right)\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{S},y\right)\right)\\ \text{\hspace{1em}}\text{\hspace{1em}}\text{\hspace{1em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}=2\left(\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{2},y\right)\mathrm{log}L\left({b}_{1},y\right)\right).\end{array}$$
Asymptotically, the difference D has a chisquared distribution with
degrees of freedom v equal to the difference in the number of parameters
estimated in M_{1} and
M_{2}. You can obtain the
pvalue for this test by using 1 —
chi2cdf(D,v)
.
Typically, you examine D using a model M_{2} with a constant term and no predictors. Therefore, D has a chisquared distribution with p – 1 degrees of freedom. If the dispersion is estimated, the difference divided by the estimated dispersion has an F distribution with p – 1 numerator degrees of freedom and n – p denominator degrees of freedom.
