st: glm: a question about the Deviance formula
I have a question about the Deviance formula in the -glm- output.
In my statistics handbook (Agresti 1996*, p. 96) I found the information
that Deviance in loglinear models equals the likelihood-ratio
goodness-of-fit statistic Gsq which would mean that it had the following
Deviance = 2Sum [fobs * ln(fobs / fexp)] .
Could anybody please verify this information (i.e. look up in the Stata
Your help would be very appreciated.
Thank you in advance,
