Output from GLIMMIX w/ Neg.Binomial Data

Just want to verify if the output from a GLIMMIX model with a negative binomial distribution is reported as the log of the original unit or in the form of the original unit.  Just want to verify if I need to transform the output.

Thanks

The least squares means are in the link space (which is log for NEGBIN).  Add the ILINK option to the LSMEANS/LSMESTIMATE statement to get values on the original scale.
