Example 9. Goodness-of-Fit Tests and Subpopulations

A study is done to investigate the effects of two binary factors, A and B, on
a binary response, Y.  Subjects are randomly selected from subpopulations
defined by the four possible combinations of levels of A and B.  The number
of subjects responding with each level of Y is recorded and entered into data
set A.

First, a full model is fit to examine the main effects of A and B as well as
the interaction effect of A and B. Note that Pearson and Deviance
goodness-of-fit tests cannot be obtained for this model since a full model
containing four parameters is fit, leaving no residual degrees of freedom.
For a binary response model, the goodness-of-fit tests have m-q degrees of
freedom, where m is the number of subpopulations and q is the number of model
parameters. In the preceding model, m=q=4, resulting in zero degrees of
freedom for the tests.

Results of the model fit above show that neither the A*B interaction nor the
B main effect is significant. If a reduced model containing only the A effect
is fit, two degrees of freedom become available for testing goodness of fit.
Specifying the SCALE=NONE option requests the Pearson and deviance
statistics.  With single-trial syntax, the AGGREGATE= option is needed to
define the subpopulations in the study.

Specifying AGGREGATE=(A B) creates subpopulations of the four combinations of
levels of A and B. Although the B effect is being dropped from the model, it
is still needed to define the original subpopulations in the study. If
AGGREGATE=(A) were specified, only two subpopulations would be created from
the levels of A, resulting in m=q=2 and zero degrees of freedom for the
