GLM
(endog, exog, family=None, offset=None, exposure=None, freq_weights=None, var_weights=None, missing='none', **kwargs)[source]¶ Generalized Linear Models class
GLM inherits from statsmodels.base.model.LikelihoodModel
Parameters:  endog (arraylike) – 1d array of endogenous response variable. This array can be 1d or 2d. Binomial family models accept a 2d array with two columns. If supplied, each observation is expected to be [success, failure].
 exog (arraylike) – A nobs x k array where nobs is the number of observations and k is the number of regressors. An intercept is not included by default and should be added by the user (models specified using a formula include an intercept by default). See statsmodels.tools.add_constant.
 family (family class instance) – The default is Gaussian. To specify the binomial distribution family = sm.family.Binomial() Each family can take a link instance as an argument. See statsmodels.family.family for more information.
 offset (arraylike or None) – An offset to be included in the model. If provided, must be an array whose length is the number of rows in exog.
 exposure (arraylike or None) – Log(exposure) will be added to the linear prediction in the model. Exposure is only valid if the log link is used. If provided, it must be an array with the same length as endog.
 freq_weights (arraylike) – 1d array of frequency weights. The default is None. If None is selected or a blank value, then the algorithm will replace with an array of 1’s with length equal to the endog. WARNING: Using weights is not verified yet for all possible options and results, see Notes.
 var_weights (arraylike) – 1d array of variance (analytic) weights. The default is None. If None is selected or a blank value, then the algorithm will replace with an array of 1’s with length equal to the endog. WARNING: Using weights is not verified yet for all possible options and results, see Notes.
 missing (str) – Available options are ‘none’, ‘drop’, and ‘raise’. If ‘none’, no nan checking is done. If ‘drop’, any observations with nans are dropped. If ‘raise’, an error is raised. Default is ‘none.’

Notes
Only the following combinations make sense for family and link:
Family ident log logit probit cloglog pow opow nbinom loglog logc Gaussian x x x x x x x x x inv Gaussian x x x binomial x x x x x x x x x Poission x x x neg binomial x x x x gamma x x x Tweedie x x x Not all of these link functions are currently available.
Endog and exog are references so that if the data they refer to are already arrays and these arrays are changed, endog and exog will change.
Statsmodels supports two separte definitions of weights: frequency weights and variance weights.
Frequency weights produce the same results as repeating observations by the frequencies (if those are integers). Frequency weights will keep the number of observations consistent, but the degrees of freedom will change to reflect the new weights.
Variance weights (referred to in other packages as analytic weights) are used when
endog
represents an an average or mean. This relies on the assumption that that the inverse variance scales proportionally to the weight–an observation that is deemed more credible should have less variance and therefore have more weight. For thePoisson
family–which assumes that occurences scale proportionally with time–a natural practice would be to use the amount of time as the variance weight and setendog
to be a rate (occurrances per period of time). Similarly, using a compound Poisson family, namelyTweedie
, makes a similar assumption about the rate (or frequency) of occurences having variance proportional to time.Both frequency and variance weights are verified for all basic results with nonrobust or heteroscedasticity robust
cov_type
. Other robust covariance types have not yet been verified, and at least the small sample correction is currently not based on the correct total frequency count.Currently, all residuals are not weighted by frequency, although they may incorporate

WARNING: Loglikelihood and deviance are not valid in models where scale is equal to 1 (i.e.,
Binomial
,NegativeBinomial
, andPoisson
). If variance weights are specified, then results such asloglike
anddeviance
are based on a quasilikelihood interpretation. The loglikelihood is not correctly specified in this case, and statistics based on it, such AIC or likelihood ratio tests, are not appropriate.
df_model
Model degrees of freedom is equal to p  1, where p is the number of regressors. Note that the intercept is not reported as a degree of freedom.
Type: float

df_resid
Residual degrees of freedom is equal to the number of observation n minus the number of regressors p.
Type: float

endog
See above. Note that endog is a reference to the data so that if data is already an array and it is changed, then endog changes as well.
Type: array

exposure
¶ Include ln(exposure) in model with coefficient constrained to 1. Can only be used if the link is the logarithm function.
Type: arraylike

exog

Type: array

var_weights
