I have count data passenger as Y. The data look like this, as many of the values are 1 (about 18%.)
Does it make sense that I take a log of it, and take it as a dependent variable in a generalized linear model with Poisson distribution :
I know the link function is log for Poisson distribution. Did I have a problem to take double log of the Y? The question for me is that my Log(Y) model has a much better goodness-of-fit stat compared to my Y model. I tried some Poisson and Negative Binomial model and they are not fitting very well.
What other strategies may I try to model this data?
