GLM Saturated Model Question
Posted:
Mar 31, 2013 3:44 PM


In the chapter on Analysis of Deviance on Generalized Linear Models I came across 'Saturated Model'  a model that includes as many parameters as the number of observations.
1) I am having difficulty visualising Saturated model. Can someone please give me the Saturated model in terms of Yi, X1i, X2i etc?
2) Since I am unable to visualise the saturated model, I can't appreciate the fact that the for the saturated model the fitted value is in fact the actual response value.
Thanks in advance.
