Title: Fitting an Observed Frequency Distribution to the Closest Poisson Distribution
Url: http://faculty.vassar.edu/lowry/poissonfit.html
Creator: Lowry, Richard, 1940-
Publisher: Vassar College
Description: This page calculates the Poisson distribution that most closely fits an observed frequency distribution, as determined by the method of least squares. Users enter observed frequencies, and the page returns the fitted Poisson frequencies, the mean and variance of the observed distribution and the fitted Poisson distribution, and R-squared.
