Zero-truncated Poisson-Lindley distribution
Keywords:Maximum Likelihood Method, Over-dispersion, Under-dispersion, Zero Count
In order to find a counting distribution that can handle the condition when the data has no zero-count. Distribution named Zero-truncated Poisson-Lindley distribution is developed. It can handle the condition when the data has no zero-count both in over-dispersion and under-dispersion. In this paper, characteristics of Zero-truncated Poisson-Lindley distribution are obtained and estimate distribution parameters using the maximum likelihood method. Then, the application of the model to real data is given.
