Webinar: Making the Most from Counts

This presentation provides practical aspects for modeling counts; e.g., manufacturing defects. It contrasts and compares Poisson with ordinary least squares regression (with and without transformation). These options are then demonstrated via a designed experiment done on microwave popcorn to reduce defects, i.e., ‘bullets’ in the bottom of the bag. Attend this webinar to make your counts add up to successful experimental results.
