Non-linear link functions cause some difficulty in interpreting parameters in generalized mixed regression models. In this seminar, the presenter will cover the interpretation of both regression coefficients and variance components in generalized mixed regression models. Additionally, the seminar will explain why regression coefficients for within- and between-cluster covariates have different interpretations. Interpretation of variance components, within and between, will be covered. While the focus will be on logistic and log-linear models, the ideas covered in this seminar also apply to other link functions. Numerical examples will be presented.
