Fitting Linear Models

Using the Fit Model platform, you can specify complex models efficiently. Your task is simplified by Macros, Attributes, and transformations. Fit Model is your gateway to fitting a broad variety of models and effect structures.

These include:

• simple and multiple linear regression

• analysis of variance and covariance

• random effect, nested effect, mixed effect, repeated measures, and split plot models

• nominal and ordinal logistic regression

• multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA)

• canonical correlation and discriminant analysis

• loglinear variance (to model the mean and the variance)

• generalized linear models (GLM)

• parametric survival and proportional hazards

• response screening, for studying a large number of responses

In JMP Pro, you can also fit the following:

• mixed models with a range of covariance structures

• generalized regression models including the elastic net, lasso, and ridge regression

• partial least squares

The Fit Model platform lets you fit a large variety of types of models by selecting the desired personality. This chapter focuses on the elements of the Model Specification window that are common to most personalities.
