glmDS2 {dsBase}R Documentation

glmDS2 called by ds.glm

Description

This is the second serverside aggregate function called by ds.glm.

Usage

glmDS2(formula, family, beta.vect, offset, weights, dataName)

Arguments

formula

a glm() formula consistent with R syntax eg U~x+y+Z to regress variables U on x,y and Z

family

a glm() family consistent with R syntax eg "gaussian", "poisson", "binomial"

beta.vect

a numeric vector created by the clientside function specifying the vector of regression coefficients at the current iteration

offset

an optional variable providing a regression offset

weights

an optional variable providing regression weights

dataName

an optional character string specifying a data.frame object holding the data to be analysed under the specified model same

Details

It is an aggregation function that uses the model structure and starting beta.vector constructed by glmDS1 to iteratively fit the generalized linear model that has been been specified. The function glmDS2 also carries out a series of disclosure checks and if the arguments or data fail any of those tests, model construction is blocked and an appropriate serverside error message is created and returned to ds.glm on the clientside. For more details please see the extensive header for ds.glm.
