I'm working on Rstudio and I have a question about residues in a binomial glm's case.
I used a glm to correct my response variable (germination (ger_b), encode 0, 1) by the light, because this variable presents variation inside my treatments.
Because I want to use treatment and light as explaining variable, I I use the residuals of this as new response variable instead of binary germination.
Here's my code:
C_ger_b <- glm(ger_b ~ lum, family=binomial(link=logit), data=d) R_ger_b <- residuals(C_ger_b)
My question is : Can I use this new variable in a binomial glm or glmer, even if it's not binary anymore?
Here is my new response variable :
summary(R_ger_b) Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max. -1.59181 -1.25091 0.84093 0.06977 1.00200 1.25993
Here is my initial response variable :
summary(d$ger_b) Min. 1st Qu. Median Mean 3rd Qu. Max. 0.00 0.00 1.00 0.61 1.00 1.00
I hope my question isn't inappropriate, thank you for your time.
