A bivariate zero-inflated negative binomial regression model for count data with excess zeros. (English) Zbl 1255.62211
Summary: We propose a bivariate zero-inflated negative binomial regression model for count data with excess zeros, and provides an estimation method based on the EM and quasi-Newton algorithms. An application to the analysis of health-care utilization is given.
