I am working on the relationship between two count variables and are trying to figure out the best way to analyze.

The dependent var is the number of times a particular stage of swallowing occurs and we want to determine if # of chewing cycles  predicts this variable.

So both vars are count (# of st per swallow and number of chews per swallow)

I thought that the best way to analyze was using nbreg (assumptions not met for poisson regression)

These are new kind of var for me.

Any suggestions-thoughts?

Thanks!

Mar
