    A useful extension of the Burr III distribution

    For any continuous baseline G distribution, Zografos and Balakrishnan (Statistical Methodology 6:344–362, 2009) introduced the gamma-generated family of distributions with an extra shape parameter. Based on th...

    Quantile regression for overdispersed count data: a hierarchical method

    Generalized Poisson regression is commonly applied to overdispersed count data, and focused on modelling the conditional mean of the response. However, conditional mean regression models may be sensitive to re...

    Describing the Flexibility of the Generalized Gamma and Related Distributions

    The generalized gamma (GG) distribution is a widely used, flexible tool for parametric survival analysis. Many alternatives and extensions to this family have been proposed. This paper characterizes the flexib...

    Analysis of case-control data with interacting misclassified covariates

    Case-control studies are important and useful methods for studying health outcomes and many methods have been developed for analyzing case-control data. Those methods, however, are vulnerable to mismeasurement...

    Erlang renewal models for genetic recombination

    Erlang renewal models, also called chi-squared models, provide a tractable model for genetic recombination that exhibits positive interference. Closed form expressions for multilocus probabilities are derived ...

    On Poisson–Tweedie mixtures

    Poisson-Tweedie mixtures are the Poisson mixtures for which the mixing measure is generated by those members of the family of Tweedie distributions whose support is non-negative. This class of non-negative int...

    A flexible distribution class for count data

    The Poisson, geometric and Bernoulli distributions are special cases of a flexible count distribution, namely the Conway-Maxwell-Poisson (CMP) distribution – a two-parameter generalization of the Poisson distr...

    Rank correlation under categorical confounding

    Rank correlation is invariant to bijective marginal transformations, but it is not immune to confounding. Assuming a categorical confounding variable is observed, the author proposes weighted coefficients of c...

    A new diversity estimator

    The maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) of Gini-Simpson’s diversity index (GS) is widely used but suffers from large bias when the number of species is large or infinite. We propose a new estimator of the GS in...

    Goodness of fit for the logistic regression model using relative belief

    A logistic regression model is a specialized model for product-binomial data. When a proper, noninformative prior is placed on the unrestricted model for the product-binomial model, the hypothesis H ...

    A note on inconsistent families of discrete multivariate distributions

    We construct a d-dimensional discrete multivariate distribution for which any proper subset of its components belongs to a specific family of distributions. However, the joint d-dimensional distribution fails to ...

    Recent developments on the moment problem
