Tests for the Change-Point in the Zero-Inflated Poisson Distribution

  • Published : 2004.05.31


Zero-Inflated Poisson distribution is Poisson distribution with excess zeros. Recently defects of product hardley happen in the manufacturing process. In this case it is desirable to apply to the Zero-Inflated Poisson distribution rather than Poisson. Our target of this paper is to study the tests for changes of rate of defects after the unknown change-point. We are going to compare the powers of the two proposed tests with likelihood tests by the simulations.
