Examples

```require(stats)
require(graphics) # for mosaicplot
summary(esoph)
## effects of alcohol, tobacco and interaction, age-adjusted
model1 <- glm(cbind(ncases, ncontrols) ~ agegp + tobgp * alcgp,
data = esoph, family = binomial())
anova(model1)
## Try a linear effect of alcohol and tobacco
model2 <- glm(cbind(ncases, ncontrols) ~ agegp + unclass(tobgp)
+ unclass(alcgp),
data = esoph, family = binomial())
summary(model2)
## Re-arrange data for a mosaic plot
ttt <- table(esoph\$agegp, esoph\$alcgp, esoph\$tobgp)
o <- with(esoph, order(tobgp, alcgp, agegp))
ttt[ttt == 1] <- esoph\$ncases[o]
tt1 <- table(esoph\$agegp, esoph\$alcgp, esoph\$tobgp)
tt1[tt1 == 1] <- esoph\$ncontrols[o]
tt <- array(c(ttt, tt1), c(dim(ttt),2),
c(dimnames(ttt), list(c("Cancer", "control"))))
mosaicplot(tt, main = "esoph data set", color = TRUE)
