### 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 <...
