Description

Many tests for the dispersion parameter in Poisson distribution.

Usage

1
2
colpoisdisp.tests(y, alternative = "either", logged = FALSE)
colpois.tests(y, logged = FALSE)

Arguments

y

A numerical matrix with count data, 0, 1,...

alternative

Do you want to test specifically for either over or underspirsion ("either"), overdispersion ("over") or undersispersion ("under")?

logged

Set to TRUE if you want the logarithm of the p-value.

Value

A matrix with two columns, the test statistic and the (logged) p-value.
