st: Transforming regressors prior to estimation in count models
I'm about to embark on an analysis using count models to replicate a study
in which the authors log transformed or used some other transformation on
their regressors prior to estimating their models. I was under the impression
that typically one begins with untransformed variables in count models, assess
the fit, and then -- if necessary -- transforms regressors.
Any thoughts on these approaches?
Thanks in advance.
