Models for Truncated Counts
This paper examines a class of maximum-likelihood regression estimators for count data from truncated samples. Estimators for the truncated Poisson and negative binomial distributions are illustrated. Simulation results are given to illustrate the magnitude of the bias that may result from the failure to account for overdispersion in truncated samples. An empirical application based upon the number of recreational fishing trips taken by a sample of Alaskan fishermen is provided. Copyright 1991 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
