statsmodels.genmod.families.family.NegativeBinomial

class statsmodels.genmod.families.family.NegativeBinomial(link=<class 'statsmodels.genmod.families.links.log'>, alpha=1.0)[source]

Negative Binomial exponential family.

Parameters:

link : a link instance, optional

The default link for the negative binomial family is the log link. Available links are log, cloglog, identity, nbinom and power. See statsmodels.family.links for more information.

alpha : float, optional

The ancillary parameter for the negative binomial distribution. For now alpha is assumed to be nonstochastic. The default value is 1. Permissible values are usually assumed to be between .01 and 2.

Notes

Power link functions are not yet supported.

Attributes

NegativeBinomial.link a link instance The link function of the negative binomial instance
NegativeBinomial.variance varfunc instance variance is an instance of statsmodels.family.varfuncs.nbinom
