Analysis of Food Poisoning via Zero Inflation Models Jung, Hwan-Sik; Kim, Byung-Jip; Cho, Sin-Sup; Yeo, In-Kwon;
Poisson regression and negative binomial regression are usually used to analyze counting data; however, these models are unsuitable for fit zero-inflated data that contain unexpected zero-valued observations. In this paper, we review the zero-inflated regression in which Bernoulli process and the counting process are hierarchically mixed. It is known that zero-inflated regression can efficiently model the over-dispersion problem. Vuong statistic is employed to compare performances of the zero-inflated models with other standard models.
