I am trying to run a glmm with a negative binomial distribution but am having difficulty coding it.
I ran a glm.nb to obtain a value for theta and then used in in the lmer model as below:
However, I keep getting error messages:
Error in famType(glmFit$family) :
unknown GLM family: 'Negative Binomial(0.43)'
If anybody could enlighten me to the best way to procede it would be much apprecaited.
