Loglinear models are generalized linear models for a Poisson response with log link. The loglinear models are commonly used to model count data and cell frequencies in contingency tables in particular.


Let Y be a Poisson random variable with mean E( Y) = μ and let \( X = \left( {{X_1},{X_2}, \ldots, {X_p}} \right) \)
