Fixed intercepts Poisson regression.

1 | ```
fipois.reg(y, x, id, tol = 1e-07, maxiters = 100)
``` |

`y` |
The dependent variable, a numerical vector with integer, non negative valued data. |

`x` |
A matrix with the indendent variables. |

`id` |
A numerical variable with 1, 2, ... indicating the subject. Unbalanced design is of course welcome. |

`tol` |
The tolerance value to terminate the Newton-Raphson algorithm.
This is set to |

`maxiters` |
The maximum number of iterations that can take place during the fitting. |

Fixed intercepts Poisson regression for clustered count data is fitted. According to Demidenko (2013), when the
number of clusters (N) is small and the number of observations per cluster (*n_i*) is relatively large,
say *min(n_i) > N*, one may assume that the intercept *α_i = β + u_i* is fixed and unknown
(*i=1,...,N*).

A list including:

`be` |
The regression coefficients. |

`seb` |
The standard errors of the regression coefficients. |

`ai` |
The estimated fixed intercepts fore ach cluster of observations. |

`covbeta` |
The covariance matrix of the regression coefficients. |

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

`iters` |
The number of iteration the Newton-Raphson required. |
