affairs

Description

Data from Fair (1978). Although Fair used a tobit model with the data, the outcome measure can be modeled as a count. In fact, Greene (2003) modeled it as Poisson, but given the amount of overdispersion in the data, employing a negative binomial model is an appropriate strategy. The data is stored in the affairs data set. Naffairs is the response variable, indicating the number of affairs reported by the participant in the past year.

Usage

data(affairs)
