Baetschmann, Gregori; Winkelmann, Rainer (2012). Modelling zero-inflated count data when exposure varies: with an application to sick leave. Working paper series / Department of Economics 61, University of Zurich.



This paper is concerned with the analysis of zero-inflated count data when time of exposure varies. It proposes a new zero-inflated count data model that is based on two homogeneous Poisson processes and accounts for exposure time in a theory consistent way. The new model is used in an application to the effect of insurance generosity on the number of absent days.
