MLE of the left censored Poisson distribution | R Documentation |

MLE of the left censored Poisson distribution.

```
censpois.mle(x, tol = 1e-07)
```

`x` |
A vector with positive valued data (zeros are not allowed). |

`tol` |
The tolerance level up to which the maximisation stops; set to 1e-07 by default. |

Instead of maximising the log-likelihood via a numerical optimiser we have used a Newton-Raphson algorithm which is faster. The lowest value in x is taken as the censored point. Values below are censored.

A list including:

`iters` |
The number of iterations required for the Newton-Raphson to converge. |

`loglik` |
The value of the maximised log-likelihood. |

`lambda` |
The estimated |
