Hi,
I am using the fitdistr of MASS to get the MLE for the lambda of a Poisson distribution.
When i run the fitdistr command, i get an output that looks like -
lambda
3.750000
(0.03343)
Couple of questions -
1. is the MLE 0.03343 for the lambda of the given distribution then?
2. How would I calculate the variance of the MLE for the lambda?
Thanks much!
Ankush
