Exploring Links for the Gaussian Distribution


Compared to the linear model, one advantage of the generalized linear model is its ability to model different relationships between the response variable and the predictors. One challenge is knowing which link to use. In this vignette, we will explore how different relationships affect correlation and the visual appearance of scatter plots.


Different links for the Gaussian distribution were explored, but the Gaussian distribution is not a special case. Everything that was done here could be done for any distribution in the glm framework.
