Then the maximum likelihood estimation of the parameters of the zero-inflated alternative hyper-Poisson distribution is discussed and certain test procedures are constructed for testing the significance of the inflation parameter. All the procedures are illustrated with the help of certain real life data sets. Moreover, a brief simulation study is carried out for assessing the performances}, number={4}, journal={Statistica}, author={Kumar, Satheesh and Ramachandran, Rakhi}, year={2021}, month={Jan.}, pages={423–446} }
