What is special about the Poisson/Binomial distributions such that they have special regression estimation techniques?

Poisson and Binomial are reasonable distributions for raw data values for a response variable: Y = integer counts and Y = binary yes/no answers are fairly common. There are also Beta regression (Y = ...

What is special about the Poisson/Binomial distributions such that they have special regression estimation techniques?

Another aspect of this is that the generalised linear models including linear, Poisson, and binomial, are computationally well-behaved (even fitted with Newton's method) and so were easy to implement ...

What is the interleaved probability like when two Gamma distribution processes fired together?

Question Description Analysis Use Case 1 as an example, named it as $D_{11}=t$ First, considering $D_{11}=t$ without the interference of Unit2, i.e., $D_{1}=t$ \begin{align} P(D_1=t) = PDF(t;\...

Help with choosing stats test for bird count data

My first reaction would be that this is a count outcome, not continuous, so things like count distributions seem like a good idea. In practice, very few counts will follow a Poisson distribution, ...

How can you model the arrival times of 2 different events?

I'm not 100% clear on the system you're trying to model. Here is a simulation that roughly meets your description. I've implemented two types of events Waiting and <...

Help with choosing stats test for bird count data

There are at least two issues here. One is that you have repeated measures (because you used the same places twice). The other is whether you want to include any covariates (such as the elevation, ...

How can you model the arrival times of 2 different events?

I can imagine cases where the above is independent and also where it's not - ie if the person has been waiting for 1hr it's more likely they have gotten bored. There must certainly be some dependence....
