One-truncated Zeta Distribution Family Function


Estimates the parameter of the 1-truncated zeta distribution.


otzeta(lshape = "loglink", ishape = NULL, gshape = exp((-4:3)/4), zero = NULL)


lshape, ishape, gshape, zero

Same as zetaff.


The 1-truncated zeta distribution is the ordinary zeta distribution but with the probability of one being 0. Thus the other probabilities are scaled up (i.e., divided by 1-P[Y=1]). The mean is returned by default as the fitted values. More details can be found at zetaff. Multiple responses are handled.


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