Comment from the Stata technical group

Comments from the publisher

In Modeling Count Data, examples demonstrate how to fit models using a combination of official and user-written commands in Stata. In addition, Stata datasets and code are available at the author's website.

See the following editorial reviews from the publisher:

"This is a first-rate introductory book for modeling count data, a key challenge in applied statistics. Hilbe's experience and affability shine in the text. His careful emphasis on establishing the defensibility of models, for example, in the face of overdispersion, will greatly benefit the beginning statistician. His clear informal explanations of important and complicated statistical principles are invaluable."
Andrew Robinson, University of Melbourne

"The negative binomial model is the foundation for modern analysis of count data. Joe Hilbe's work collects a vast wealth of technical and practical information for the analyst. The theoretical developments and thoroughly worked applications use realistic data sets and a variety of computer packages. They will provide to the practitioner an indispensable guide for basic single-equation count data regressions and advanced applications with recently developed model extensions and methods."
William Greene, New York University

"This book is a great introduction to models for the analysis of count data. Using the Poisson GLM as the basis, it covers a wide range of modern extensions of GLMs, and this makes it unique. Potentially complex models (which are often needed when analyzing real data sets) are presented in an understandable way, partly because data sets and software code are provided. I reckon that this volume will be one of the standard GLM reference books for many years to come."
