Re: st: LR test result for negative binomial with clusturing
In order to test for alpha = 0 you have test [lnalpha]_con = - infinity; where
lnalpha is the equation name.
Something like - test [lnalpha]_con = -500 - will produce output (on the
assumption that -500 is pretty close to negative infinity). However, given the
comments in the first technical note, page 6 [R]N-R, about the test occuring on
the boundary makes me doubt that -test- will give you the correct results in
Hope this helps,

model. It does not give me the test for alpha=0 in negative binomial. Any ideas?
