Methods: The assessment of the studied impact is conducted using the Zero-inflated Negative Binomial Regression. In addition, Factor Analysis technique is used to construct some of the explanatory variables such as womenвЂ™s empowerment, the availability and quality of health services indicators. The standard Poisson and negative binomial regression used for modeling such data cannot account for excess zeros and over-dispersion. Hence, this study was designed to model the annual trends in the occurrence of malaria among under-5 children using the zero inflated negative binomial (ZINB) and zero inflated Poisson regression (ZIP).

Zero-inflated models. Zero-inflated distributions are used to model count data that have many zero counts. For example, the zero-inflated Poisson distribution might be used to model count data for which the proportion of zero counts is greater than expected on the basis of the mean of the non-zero counts. Sep 08, 2011В В· Zero-inflated (ZI) models, which may be derived as a mixture involving a degenerate distribution at value zero and a distribution such as negative binomial (ZINB), have proved useful in dental and other areas of research by accommodating вЂextraвЂ™ zeroes in the data.
