Bayesian Truncated Poisson Regression with Application to Dutch Illegal Immigrant Data

Puza, Borek; Johnson, Helen; O'Neill, Terence; Barry, Simon


This article presents a Bayesian approach to the regression analysis of truncated data, with a focus on zero-truncated counts from the Poisson distribution. The approach provides inference not only on the regression coefficients but also on the total sample size and the parameters of the covariate distribution. The theory is applied to some illegal immigrant data from The Netherlands. Several models are fitted with the aid of Markov chain Monte Carlo methods and assessed via posterior...[Show more]
