This can happen in continuous variables as well–most of the distribution follows a beautiful normal distribution, except for the big stack of zeros.
This webinar will explore two ways of modeling zero-inflated data: the Zero Inflated model and the Hurdle model. Both assume there are two different processes: one that affects the probability of a zero and one that affects the actual values, and both allow different sets of predictors for each process.
We’ll explore these models as well as some related models, like Zero-One Inflated Beta models for proportion data.
