44049 OIM Std. Err. z P>|z| [95% Conf. 40, but given a total observation base of 5388, the added 40% overdispersion may represent a lack of model fit. We shall delay this discussion until the next section where we deal specifically with models for overdispersed data. 3 Testing overdispersion The concept of overdispersion is central to the understanding of negative binomial models. Nearly every application of the negative binomial is in response to perceived overdispersion in a Poisson model. 3 Testing overdispersion 47 in the data, or only apparent.

Under what conditions do they reduce to the same formula? 1 is the same as g (µ) or the first derivative of g(µ) wrt µ. Use the non-binomial initialization for µ and include the Chi2, AIC, and BIC statistics only as a bonus. 4 Using the data ex2 4 given below, together with the algorithm developed in question 3, model y on x1 and x2 . Determine the parameter estimates and standard errors for x1 and x2 . 4. Run the model using the same data as in question 4. Why is there no difference in results?

An easy way to check for possible overdispersion in a Poisson model is to look at the Pearson-based dispersion statistic that is typically displayed in model output. The dispersion is defined as the ratio of the Pearson statistic to the degrees of freedom, or the number of observations less predictors. 260. Such a value for a model consisting of some 1500 observations is clearly excessive. 0. 25 indicates overdispersion, but only additional investigation will inform us if it is real, or only apparent.
