**Saturated model**Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries

Common Concepts in Statistics

A model that contains as many parameters as there are data points. This model contains all main effects and all possible interactions between factors. For categorical data, this model contains the same number of parameters as cells and results in a perfect fit for a data set. The (residual) deviance is a measure of the extent to which a particular model differs from the saturated model.
