# Lots of zeros or too many zeros?: Thinking about zero inflation in count data

When working with counts, having many zeros does not necessarily indicate zero inflation. I demonstrate this by simulating data from the negative binomial and generalized Poisson distributions. I then show one way to check if the data has excess zeros compared to the number of zeros expected based on the model.

# Unstandardizing coefficients from a GLMM

Unstandardizing coefficients in order to interpret them on the original scale is often necessary when explanatory variables were standardized to help with model convergence when fitting generalized linear mixed models. Here I show one automated approach to unstandardize coefficients from a generalized linear mixed model fit with lme4.

# Using DHARMa for residual checks of unsupported models

Checking for model fit from generalized linear mixed models (GLMM) can be challenging. The DHARMa package helps with this by giving simulated residuals but doesn't work with all model types. I show how to use tools in DHARMa to extend it for use with unsupported models fit with glmmTMB() and zeroinfl().
