One-Inflated Positive Binomial Distribution


Density, distribution function, quantile function and random generation for the one-inflated positive binomial distribution with parameter pstr1.


doiposbinom(x, size, prob, pstr1 = 0, log = FALSE)
poiposbinom(q, size, prob, pstr1 = 0)
qoiposbinom(p, size, prob, pstr1 = 0)
roiposbinom(n, size, prob, pstr1 = 0)


x, p, q, n

Same as Posbinom.

size, prob

Same as Posbinom.


Probability of a structural one (i.e., ignoring the positive binomial distribution), called phi. The default value of phi = 0 corresponds to the response having a positive binomial distribution. However, pstr1 can also be negative, in which case it ceases its interpretation as a probability, and this is known as one-deflation.


Logical. Return the logarithm of the answer?


The probability function of Y is 1 with probability phi, and PosBinomial(size, prob) with probability 1-phi. Thus

P(Y=1) = phi + (1-phi) * P(W=1)

where W is distributed as a positive binomial(size, prob) random variable.


doiposbinom gives the density, poiposbinom gives the distribution function, qoiposbinom gives the quantile function, and roiposbinom generates random deviates.


The argument pstr1 is recycled to the required length, and usually has values which lie in the interval [0,1]. These functions actually allow for the zero-deflated binomial distribution. Here, pstr1 is also permitted to lie in the interval [-A, 0] for some positive quantity A. The resulting probability of a unit value is less than the nominal positive binomial value, and the use of pstr1 to stand for the probability of a structural 1 loses its meaning. If pstr1 equals A then this corresponds to the 0- and 1-truncated binomial distribution.
