This question already has an answer here:
I've got a couple different models (poisson regression vs. OLS linear model on log-transformed DV) and trying to compare the two. They both provide reasonably good fit to the data.
I have heard people state that you cannot use AIC/BIC to compare these two but cannot seem to find a reference to this effect. They are different kinds of models, so I'm curious to know how one should go about making the decision between them.
