Abstract

A Poisson model typically is assumed for count data. However Poisson model is not suitable for data because of too many zeros. Furt hermore, the response variable in such cases is censored for some values. In this pa per, a zero-inflated Poisson regression model is introduced on censored data. In this mod el, we consider a response variable and one or more than one explanatory variables. The estimation of regression parameters using the maximum likelihood method is discusse d and the goodness-of-fit for the regression model is examined. We study the effects of r ight censoring in terms of parameters estimation and their standard errors via simu lation and an example.
