One-inflated Positive Poisson Distribution Family Function


Fits a 1-inflated positive Poisson distribution.


oipospoisson(lpstr1 = "logitlink", llambda = "loglink",
   type.fitted = c("mean", "lambda", "pobs1", "pstr1", "onempstr1"),
   ilambda = NULL, gpstr1 = (1:19)/20, gprobs.y = (1:19)/20,
   imethod = 1, zero = NULL)


lpstr1, llambda

For lpstr1: the same idea as zipoisson except it applies to a structural 1.

ilambda, gpstr1, gprobs.y, imethod

For initial values. See CommonVGAMffArguments for information.

type.fitted, zero

See CommonVGAMffArguments for information.


The 1-inflated positive Poisson distribution is a mixture distribution of the positive (0-truncated) Poisson distribution with some probability of obtaining a (structural) 1. Thus there are two sources for obtaining the value 1. It is similar to a zero-inflated Poisson model, except the Poisson is replaced by a positive Poisson and the 0 is replaced by 1. This distribution is written here in a way that retains a similar notation to the zero-inflated Poisson, i.e., the probability P[Y=1] involves another parameter phi. See zipoisson.

This family function can handle multiple responses.


An object of class "vglmff" (see vglmff-class). The object is used by modelling functions such as vglm, rrvglm and vgam.


Under- or over-flow may occur if the data is ill-conditioned.
