Rippon, Paul; and Rayner, John, Assessing Poisson and Logistic Regression Models Using Smooth Tests, Proceedings of the Fourth Annual ASEARC Conference, 17-18 February 2011, University of Western Sydney, Paramatta, Australia.


The smooth testing approach described in [2] has been used to develop a test of the distributional assumption for generalized linear models. Application of the test to help assess Poisson and logistic regression models is discussed. Power is compared to other common tests.
