Hello

I want to batch job the calculation of many GLM-models, extract some values and store them in a file. Almost everything in the script below works (read file, extract values and write them to file) except I fail in indexing the GLM with the modelstructure it should run. Running GLM's conventionally is no problem.

Conventionally a GLM is calculated as:

glm(ZlogHRS ~ ZRi+ZE+ZPROX_MN+ZED+ZAlwd+ZT2+ZW+ZN+Sex+y, family = gaussian, data=t.data)

(just a note: dependent variable is ZlogHRS, while the others are indepent variables)

Desired way: sequentially run GLM

I want R to take the model structure to take from a vector called "modelstructure" and paste it into the GLM like:

glm(modelstructure[i], family = gaussian, data=t.data).

It would considerably ease my workload if there is a solution to the indexing problem within a GLM. I appreciate any hint.

Best regards

Lukas

p.s.

my R skills are rather poor
