NOTICE: I have no objection for my personal photograph to be used on another academic or informational web site. I have been asked this several times, so such use is hereby granted. Stat/Transfer 12 now out. Fantastic software for converting data between statistical packages. I highly recommend. www.stattransfer.com The SECOND (shows 5th in book) PRINTING of Negative Binomial Regression, 2nd edition was published in May 2012. The 1st printing sold out before the 2nd printing was ready. All of the errata given in the "NBR2 Errata & Comments" were corrected, and several major sections of the book were re-written. Also, references to newly written software and methods are provided. Download "Negative Binomial Regression Extensions" for additional R, Stata, and SAS functions and scripts. R data files, functions, and scripts used in the book are located in the "COUNT" package, that can be downloaded from R's CRAN web site. ******************NOTICE****************** Hilbe and Robinson, METHODS OF STATISTICAL MODEL ESTIMATION, Chapman & Hall/CRC was published 28 May, 2013. Check out details: http://www.crcpress.com/product/isbn/9781439858028 or on Amazon. R data files, function and scripts used in book are located in the "msme" package on CRAN, Including the "nbinomial" function, an enhanced negative binomial regression function with direct parameterization of the mean and dispersion parameter the default. Pearson Chi2 and dispersion statistic also displayed in addition to standard glm.nb output. Optional parameterization of the dispersion parameter as well; ie. heterogeneous NB. ****************NEW BOOK********************** Zuur, Hilbe, and Ieno, A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO GLM AND GLMM WITH R: a frequentist and Bayesian Perspective for ecologists", Highlands Statistics, was published 10 June,2013 in paperback. UK and US warehouse sites. Using ecological examples, the ~274 page book shows readers how to use R and JAGS to model GLMs and GLMMs. JAGS is used from within R after installing the "R2jags" package from CRAN. It is a full fledged Bayesian modeling facility, and works from within R as any other package. Focus on GLM-GLMM frequentist and Bayesian Bernoulli, binomial, Poisson, negative binomial, and beta binomial models. I highly recommend the book. Go to ***** http://www.highstat.com/BGGLM.htm ***** for details and ordering. Online access to other books and complete code included. ****************NEW BOOK********************** Shults and Hilbe, QUASI-LEAST SQUARES REGRESSION, Chapman & Hall/CRC. Publish end January 2014. 221 pages. QLS is an extension to GEE methodology, which is particularly useful for modeling otherwise infeasible GEE models. This is the founding text on the subject, which has been finding use in the health and medical fields. Every facet of the methodology is discussed, with host of worked out examples. Stata is used for examples, as well as R, SAS and Matlab. See the following web site hosted by Justine Shults -- https://dbe.med.upenn.edu/biostat-research/Book-QLS MODELING COUNT DATA (Cambridge University Press) is to be published in paperback. Due to be published in early May 2014. Cost: lists for $34, but already pre-sale prices at under $30. Book is a guidelines for analysts on how to select,construct, interpret and evaluate the full range of count models. Full working Stata, R and SAS code provided in book, and on this website. Several new models provided. A truly applied count models book.
