Abstract

In recent years, much interest has been shown in "modeling," or fitting, primary care data to known statistical distributions. Specifically, much work has been done in studying the distributions of episodes of illness and consultations in family practices. This thesis will examine the utility of the negative binomial distribution's fit to family practice data.
