We propose a method based on the negative binomial distribution, with variance and mean linked by local regression and present an implementation, DESeq, as an R/Bioconductor package. Our analysis is a good starting point for future work in this area. To address this so-called overdispersion problem, it has been proposed to model count data with negative binomial (NB) distributions [9], and this approach is used in the edgeR package for analysis of SAGE and RNA-Seq [8,10]. Data manipulation is easier on the messy and disjoint data we deal with in political analysis. This is a voter analysis tool providing data-mining and modeling capabilities, along with the standard counting. Q-Tool is extremely impressive. The visualization tools suited to our exact data. Section 2 reviews count data switching regression models and the estimation methods. A suitable error model are required. Finally, R has excellent support for basic politics statistics like clustering and regression analysis, to say nothing of more advanced statistical tools multilevel modeling and simulation. The remainder of the paper is organized as follows. I have noticed that when estimating the parameters of a negative binomial distribution for describing count data, the MCMC chain can become extremely autocorrelated because the parameters are highly correlated.
