mpcmp

The mpcmp package provides a collection of functions for estimation, testing and diagnostic checking for the mean-parametrized Conway-Maxwell Poisson (COM-Poisson) regression model for under- and over-dispersed count data of Huang (2017).

From version 0.3.0, mpcmp supports log-linear mean models, also allows one to incorporate regression being linked to the dispersion parameter.

Work is progressing to include a zero-inflated Conway-Maxwell-Poisson model.
