Title: Data scientist certification

Types of Poisson Regression
Offset Regression
  • A variant of Poisson Regression
  • Count data often have an exposure variable, which
    indicates the number of times the event could
    have happened
  • This variable should be incorporated into a
    Poisson model with the use of the offset option

Offset Regression
  • If all the students have same exposure to math
    (program), the number of awards are comparable
  • But if there is variation in the exposure, it
    could affect the count
  • A count of 5 awards out of 5 years is much bigger
    than a count of 1 out of 3
  • Rate of awards is count/exposure
  • In a model for awards count, the exposure is
    moved to the right side
  • Then if the algorithm of count is logged also
    the exposure, the final model contains
    ln(exposure) as term that is added to the
    regression equation
  • This logged variable, ln(exposure) or a
    similarity constructed variable is called the
    offset variable

Offset Poisson Regression
  • A data frame with 63 observations on the
    following 4 variables. (lung.cancer)
  • years.smok a factor giving the number of years
  • cigarettes a factor giving cigarette consumption
  • Time man-years at risk
  • y number of deaths

Negative Binomial Regression
  • One potential drawback of Poisson regression is
    that it may not accurately describe the
    variability of the counts
  • A Poisson distribution is parameterized by ?,
    which happens to be both its mean and variance.
    While convenient to remember, its not often
  • A distribution of counts will usually have a
    variance thats not equal to its mean. When we
    see this happen with data that we assume (or
    hope) is Poisson distributed, we say we have
    under- or over dispersion, depending on if the
    variance is smaller or larger than the mean.
  • Performing Poisson regression on count data that
    exhibits this behavior results in a model that
    doesnt fit well.

  • One approach that addresses this issue is
    Negative Binomial Regression.
  • We go for Negative Binomial Regression when
    Variance gt Mean (over dispersion)
  • The negative binomial distribution, like the
    Poisson distribution, describes the probabilities
    of the occurrence of whole numbers greater than
    or equal to 0.
  • The variance of a negative binomial distribution
    is a function of its mean and has an additional
    parameter, k, called the dispersion parameter.
  • The variance of a negative binomial distribution
    is a function of its mean and has an additional
    parameter, k, called the dispersion parameter.
