Technical Report // Universität Dortmund, SFB 475 Komplexitätsreduktion in Multivariaten Datenstrukturen 2003,12
Observations which seem to deviate strongly from the main part of the data may occur in every statistical analysis. These observations usually labelled as outliers, may cause completely misleading results when using standard methods and may also contain information about special events or dependencies. Therefore it is interest to identify them. We discuss outliers in situations where a generalized linear model is assumed as null-model for the regular data and introduce rules for their identifications. For the special cases of a loglinear Poisson model and a logistic regression model some one-step identifiers based on robust and non-robust estimators are proposed and compared.
