An application to Zero-Inflated Poisson Regression Model

  • Published : 2003.02.28


The Zero-Inflated Poisson regression is a model for count data with exess zeros. When the reponse variables have excess zeros, it is not easy to apply the Poisson regression model. In this paper, we study and simulate the zero-inflated Poisson regression model. An real example was applied to this model. Regression parameters are estimated by using MLE's. We also compare the fitness of zero-inflated Poisson model with the Poisson regression and decision tree model.
