I have data that has been modeled with Proc Genmod using a zero inflated negative binomial model. The original data had 85% zeros. However, when applying the Proc PLM to predict on the original dataset, it appears to only be using the negative binomial model, and ignoring the logistic model to select 0's. The predicted data shows all nonzero values. Am I applying these procs incorrectly?

Thanks,

Chris

PROC GENMOD DATA = TESTING.CLAIMS,

MODEL TTD_DAYS_PAID = ODCUM TRAUMA AGE /DIST = ZINB;

ZEROMODEL ODCUM TRAUMA AGE / LINK = LOGIT;

STORE OUT=TESTING.ZINBMOD;

RUN;

PROC PLM SOURCE=TESTING.ZINBMOD;

SCORE DATA=TESTING.CLAIMS OUT=TESTING.CLAIMSPRED / ILINK;

RUN;

Thanks. I tried this, and I get smaller number for the prediction on the same rows, but still no 0's. I just looked at the item store and saw the note that it only contains the negative binomial portion of the model.

How would I use Proc PLM to evaluate the zero-inflated (binomial) portion of the model, if its definition is not in the store?

Also, using the PRED= option, is this utilizing both models? If so, is there a reason that I still don't get 0's?

Thanks very much!

Proc PLM used the Store variable which houses the parameter estimates. When you view this Store, it explicitly states that it is only the negative binomial portion, and when I checked the parameters, they did not include the logit parameters.

It actually doesn't. The results from proc genmod predict take both models into account. The results from proc plm only apply the poisson or negative binomial model, not the logit model. The predictions are different. Consider this self contained code. It generates a poisson distribution, forces 50% to 0, models and predicts with genmod, and then predicts with plm. The predictions are different. I calculated the results by hand, and plm matched using the poisson coeff's only.

DATA DIST (KEEP=X0-X2);

CALL STREAMINIT(4321);

BETA0 = 1; BETA1 = .2;

DO I = 1 TO 1000;

X0 = RAND("Bernoilli", .5);

X1 = RAND("Uniform");

X2 = RAND("Poisson", EXP((BETA1*X1)+BETA0)) * X0;

OUTPUT;

END;

RUN;

PROC UNIVARIATE DATA=DIST NOPRINT;

HISTOGRAM X1-X2;

RUN;

PROC GENMOD DATA = DIST; /*ZERO INFLATED POISSON*/

MODEL X2 = X1 / DIST = ZIP;

ZEROMODEL X1 / LINK = LOGIT;

STORE OUT=MOD;

OUTPUT OUT=PRED PRED=ESTIMATE;

*ODS OUTPUT PARAMETERESTIMATES=PE MODELFIT=MFIT ZEROPARAMETERESTIMATES=ZEROPE;

RUN;

PROC PLM SOURCE=MOD;

SCORE DATA=DIST OUT=PRED2 / ILINK;

RUN;

Before we get too far into this, it is possible that it was corrected in an update that my company doesn't have. We run a enterprise edition, so it isn't possible to update frequently. We are running SAS and EG 4.2 and 9.3. I know these aren't the latest versions, but I thought the zero-inflated models were added in 4.2. If you can run my code above and get matching results through either method, then that may not be the case.

Thanks. I was not getting any error or warning message, so I was not aware. I work toward getting the upgrade.
