Hello again, first off thank you for your suggestion Mr. Rigby, I'll take
a look at the GAMLSS package.
I have a (slightly) related followup question regarding the 'fitdistr'
function. I was examining my data, a sample of which is attached, using
this function and I am confused about the interpretation of the loglik
Based upon my experience I understand log-likelyhood value returned from
this function should be in the range -Inf - 0 with values closer to 0
being the best choice. However when I test this data I get the following
fitdistr(E + 1, "lognormal")$loglik
Is this a sign of error, in my system or on my part? And if not am I
correct in interpreting lognormal as the best choice?
Thank you in advance,
