113.020.010.10.10 Regression models - Poisson distribution

# Poisson distribution

### Poisson Process

- Events that occur independently over time
- Rate = lambda = y/t
- number of occurrences over time

- Rate = lambda = y/t

### Poisson Distribution

- Let y = number of occurrences in time t
- Fixes the "time" and says "given the amount of time, how often does the event occur"
