Count Data Models: Econometric Theory and an Application to by Rainer Winkelmann

By Rainer Winkelmann

This e-book provides statistical tools for the research of occasions. the first concentration is on unmarried equation go part types. The ebook addresses either the method and the perform of the topic and it offers either a synthesis of a various physique of literature that hitherto used to be on hand principally in items, in addition to a contribution to the growth of the technique, constructing a number of new effects and introducing new types. ranging from the normal Poisson regression version as a benchmark, the explanations, signs and outcomes of misspecification are labored out. either parametric and semi-parametric possible choices are mentioned. whereas semi-parametric types permit for powerful interference, parametric versions can establish positive aspects of the underlying facts iteration method.

O. In other words, the past length of a spell is without influence on its future duration. Using Bayes' rule, this condition can be rewritten as P{r>s+t,r>t}_P{ } P{r>t} r>s (2. 72) P{r>s+t}=P{r>t}P{r>s}. t. •, it follows that exponentially distributed wait- ing times is memoryless. If the spell lasted until time t, the distribution of the remaining elapsed time until completion is identical to the original lifetime distribution. A distribution for discrete waiting times with similar properties is the geometric distribution.

Within the single spells. The second is dependence between successive spells. In a model for repeated durations, such a dependency might be captured through time varying covariates or lagged variables. d. interarrival times is called a renewal process. Renewal processes may, however, display duration dependence and in the following section, results from renewal theory are used to provide important insights for the modelling of count data. 2. Renewal Processes Renewal processes are discussed in Feller (1971) and in Cox (1962).

The distributions of the waiting times {}n are obtained through a convolution operation. Clearly, two types of dependencies can be distinguished. e. within the single spells. The second is dependence between successive spells. In a model for repeated durations, such a dependency might be captured through time varying covariates or lagged variables. d. interarrival times is called a renewal process. Renewal processes may, however, display duration dependence and in the following section, results from renewal theory are used to provide important insights for the modelling of count data.
