In this study, the analysis of data with many zeros for plant protection area was carried Out by using the models of Poisson Regression (PR), negative binomial (NB) regression, zero-inflated Poisson (ZIP) regression, zero-inflated negative binomial (ZINB) regression, and negative binomial hurdle (NBH) model. As zero-inflated observations are too much in the studies, done in the plant protection area; models considering zero-inflated observations are frequently required. Mites (Acari: Teranychidae; Stigmaeidae), the basic material of this study, can reach to quite high amounts under convenient temperature (18-32°C temperature). The fact that deviance obtained from PR model together with Pearson Chi-square and deviance goodness of statistics came about quite higher than the value of (1) represented that there was an overdispersion in data set. In the selection of appropriate regression model, Akaiki information criteria and Bayesian information criteria were used. At the end of these information criteria, ZINB regression was chosen as the best model. In ZINB model, the effects of Zetzellia mali, temperature, and periods were significant on the total P. ulmi number (p<0.01), while applying insecticide was insignificant (p>0.05).

    Extended quasi-likelihood has been recommended for the estimation of dispersion parameters when there is no likelihood available. It was originally developed for models with independent errors and can have poor efficiency in models with correlated errors. We show how the generalization of...

    This paper discusses a regression model for the analysis of longitudinal count data observed in a panel study. An integer-valued first-order autoregressive [INAR(1)] Poisson process is adapted to represent time-dependent correlations among the counts. By combining the INAR(1)-representation with...

    Collinearity and the lack of overlap in the data are problems that affect inference based on the logistic regression model. Simulation was used to investigate how the estimators that deal with collinearity (iterative Ridge) are affected, along with separation in the data (Firth's, and Rousseeuw...
