Thanks to everyone but I am still very confused. I should explain, I am not a mathematician, I dont understand mathmatical formulae, I am a biologist. I am looking for a regression formula for ZINB but I cannot find anything that resembles: ln (Y) + B0+B1X1 + B2X2. Yes there are formulae in the resources you are all pointing me to but none of them look like a regression equation, and they dont have X on the right hand side. I can't buy expensive books... I have been searching help file and internet resources for several months. thanks Rachel Grant 2011/9/19 rachel grant <rachelannegrant@gmail.com>: > Thank you for your help.
