An Introduction to Poisson Regression

Steven Sanderson talks about a discrete form of regression:

Hey data enthusiasts! Today, we’re diving into the fascinating world of count data and its trusty sidekick, Poisson regression. Buckle up, because we’re about to explore how this statistical powerhouse helps us understand the factors influencing, you guessed it, counts.

Scenario: Imagine you’re an education researcher, eager to understand how a student’s GPA might influence their job offer count after graduation. But hold on, job offers aren’t continuous – they’re discrete, ranging from 0 to a handful. That’s where Poisson regression comes in!

I have an unhealthy love for Poisson techniques, so I highly recommend checking this out.
