GB2 (1.0)

Generalized Beta Distribution of the Second Kind: properties, likelihood, estimation..

GB2 is a simple package that calculates the basic properties of the Generalized Beta distribution of the second kind - density, distribution function, quantiles, moments. Functions for the full loglikelihood, the profile loglikelihood and the scores are provided. Formulae for various Laeken indicators under the GB2 are implemented. It performs maximum likelihood estimation and non-linear least squares eastimation of the model parameters. It provides various polots for the vizualization and analysis of the results.
