Unformatted text preview: X i ∼ Binomial ( N i ,p ), where i refers to the county, we could have modeled it using the Poisson distribution. How would we do this (What would the parameter for the Poisson distribution be)? Graph the results, for each county, comparing the Binomial to the Poisson pdf. Which is better? Why? 2. Give an example of when what type of data and substantive question would lead you to use a Bernoulli, binomial, Poisson, geometric and hypergeometric distribution. (Don’t use examples from class or your book) 1...
