Poisson.loglike(endog, mu, freq_weights=1.0, scale=1.0)[source]

The log-likelihood function in terms of the fitted mean response.


endog : array-like

Endogenous response variable

mu : array-like

Fitted mean response variable

freq_weights : array-like

1d array of frequency weights. The default is 1.

scale : float, optional

The scale parameter, defaults to 1.


llf : float

The value of the loglikelihood function evaluated at (endog,mu,freq_weights,scale) as defined below.


llf = scale * \sum_i freq\_weights_i * (Y_i * \log(\mu_i) - \mu_i -
      \ln \Gamma(Y_i + 1))
