Description:   This package provides a set of functions to analyse
                overdispersed counts or proportions. Most of the
                methods are already available elsewhere but are
                scattered in different packages. The proposed functions
                should be considered as complements to more
                sophisticated methods such as generalized estimating
                equations (GEE) or generalized linear mixed effect
                models (GLMM).
