Returns an array of cells for the initial (non-optimal), optimal or standard errors of the model's parameters.

status code of the operation
Return values
NDK_SUCCESS  Operation successful
NDK_FAILED  Operation unsuccessful. See Macros for full list.
[in] Y is the response or the dependent variable data array (one dimensional array)
[in] nSize is the number of observations
[in] X is the independent variables data matrix, such that each column represents one variable
[in] nVars is the number of independent variables (or columns in X)
[in,out] betas are the coefficients of the GLM model (a one dimensional array)
[in] nBetas is the number of the coefficients in betas. Note that nBetas must be equal to nVars+1
[in,out] phi is the GLM dispersion parameter. Phi is only meaningful for Binomial (1/batch or trial size) and for Gaussian (variance).
  • Binomial : phi = Reciprocal of the batch/trial size.
  • Gaussian : phi = variance.
  • Poisson : phi = 1.0
[in] Lvk is the link function that describes how the mean depends on the linear predictor (see GLM_LINK_FUNC).
  1. Identity (default)
  2. Log
  3. Logit
  4. Probit
  5. Complementary log-log
[in] retType is a switch to select the type of value returned: 1= Quick Guess, 2=Calibrated, 3= Std. Errors ( see MODEL_RETVAL_FUNC)
[in] maxIter is the maximum number of iterations used to calibrate the model. If missing, the default maximum of 100 is assumed.
  1. The underlying model is described here.
  2. GLM_GUESS returns an array of size equal number of betas plus one (Phi).
  3. The number of rows in response variable (Y) must be equal to number of rows of the explanatory variables (X).
  4. For GLM with Poisson distribution,
    • The values of response variable must be non-negative integers.
    • The value of the dispersion factor (Phi) must be either missing or equal to one.
  5. For GLM with Binomial distribution,
    • The values of the response variable must be non-negative fractions between zero and one, inclusive.
    • The value of the dispersion factor (Phi) must be a positive fraction (greater than zero, and less than one).
  6. For GLM with Gaussian distribution, the dispersion factor (Phi) value must be either missing or positive.
