Sums of dependent Bernoulli random variables and disease clustering
We develop new discrete distributions that describe the behavior of a sum of dependent Bernoulli random variables. These distributions are motivated by the manner in which multiple individuals with a lung disease appear to cluster within the same family. General results for these models include recursive relationships for their mass functions and moments.
