Poisson Regression |

Begin by examining the table at the top of
the fit window that describes the model.
The first line gives the effects in the model.
The second line gives the response distribution
from which the variance function used in the
quasi-likelihood function is obtained.
The third line gives the link function of **Y**.
When an **Offset** variable is also specified in the fit
method dialog, the fourth line gives the offset in the model.
The **Nominal Variable Information** table contains the
levels of the nominal variables. The **Parameter
Information** table, as displayed in Figure 17.1, shows the
variable indices for the parameters.
