Robust inference for generalized linear models with application to logistic regression


  • Adimari, Gianfranco
  • Ventura, Laura


In this paper we consider a suitable scale adjustment of the estimating function which defines a class of robust M-estimators for generalized linear models. This leads to a robust version of the quasi-profile loglikelihood which allows us to derive robust likelihood ratio type tests for inference and model selection having the standard asymptotic behaviour. An application to logistic regression is discussed.
