Subject: Re: Another PROC MIXED question - marginal and conditional residuals Comments: To: David L Cassell In-Reply-To: Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1 Thanks to JW,PF and DC for their comments. When I have done the frequency table for the IV's as suggested by DC (see below), I find few values for the combinations, I found frequencies like 2, 3 and many of one. I think, that I need to reduce the number of IV's and I must have more than 5 number for each combination in order to have a raisonable accurate model. Any this case which goodness of fit can I use in order to see the model fit? I have another querry related to logistic regression: It is important to declare binary and categorical IV as class either in a binary logistic or ordored logistic? I have noticed that in NESUG18 (Peter Flom) the categorcial variables are not declared as class. Any comments please.

I see that Dale has already given his usual impressive answer. Let me just toss some trafe in. Think about marginal vs. conditional in the same way you think about 'marginal' when using PROC FREQ. It's *analogous* to an average of the possible conditional means - but it is not an unbiased estimator, because of the z'_i*gammahat part. So 'conditional' goes with 'conditioning on the subject'. You can convince yourself that the two words actually make sense, if you try hard enough. :-) "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the queen.
