> Hello to everyone.
> I4m writing you because I4m feeling a bit frustrated with my work.
> My work consists in finding the relation between the amount of fires and
> the weather, so, my response variable is the amount of fires in a fire
> season and the explanatory variables are the temperature, the amount of
> precipitation and the some others?. my problem is this; I keep getting
> wrong sign in the coefficients estimated, I get a negative sign for
> temperature and a positive sign for precipitation, which is unreasonable,
> the greater the temperature I would expect more fire, on the contrary,
> greater the precipitation I would expect less fires. So far I have deal
> with overdispersion, multicollinearity and the amount of zeroes through
> passing from Poisson to Negative Binomial and Hurdle. I believe I have
> used all my options and still have the wrong signs on my coefficients.
> Do I have more options? What does it mean that I keep getting those
> If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.
> Thank you.
