Stas (and others):


Thanks for responding to my question. To be honest, I am not sure how to define autocorrelation in this context. I sent out an article for review. The dependent variable is a yearly count variable--number of groups founded. The range is 0-5. I used a simply Poisson regression model with several independent variables. One of the reviewers said the analysis was flawed because I "did not test for autocorrelation on the dependent variable." Unfortunately, the reviewer did not give me any clue as to how to proceed. So I am kind of at a loss here. Essentially, I think the reviewer wanted to make sure the yearly counts were not related to each other in any meaningful way.


Any further thoughts are appreciated, and I wish I could tell you more about what I need.


A. Silva
