Dear Users, some one told me find the maximum likelihood estimate of θ for the logarithmic series distribution and construct a 95% Confidence Interval for θ. there is no sample but i was told that there is a sample of 100 observations and the sum of the X is 381. if there is a sample or if i can simulate a sample, it is easy to find the theta but if there is no sample, can someone help me out? how can i write a program to estimate the theta and its 95% Confidence Interval? thanks Amy * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
