# Likelihood ratio test for generalized linear models

### Description

Computes the likelihood ratio test for the coefficients of a generalized linear model.

### Usage

1 | ```
lr.test(fit1, fit2)
``` |

### Arguments

`fit1` |
an object that stores the results of |

`fit2` |
an object that stores the results of |

### Details

The objects `fit1`

and `fit2`

are obtained using the usual options passed to the `glm`

function.

### Value

The function `lrt.test()`

returns the following list of values:

`LR` |
the value of the likelihood ratio statistic. |

`pvalue` |
the p value of test under null hypothesis chi-square distribution. |

### Note

Both `fit1`

and `fit2`

must have the same `family`

and link function.
