function.

- Keywords
- models

##### Usage

```
# S3 method for negbin
summary(object, dispersion = 1, correlation = FALSE, …)
```

##### Arguments

- object
fitted model object of class

`negbin`

inheriting from`glm`

and`lm`

. Typically the output of`glm.nb`

.- dispersion
as for

`summary.glm`

, with a default of 1.- correlation
as for

`summary.glm`

.- …
arguments passed to or from other methods.

##### Details

`summary.glm`

is used to produce the majority of the output and supply the
result.
This function is a method for the generic function
`summary()`

for class `"negbin"`

.
It can be invoked by calling `summary(x)`

for an
object `x`

of the appropriate class, or directly by
calling `summary.negbin(x)`

regardless of the
class of the object.

##### Value

As for `summary.glm`

; the additional lines of output are not included in
the resultant object.

##### Side Effects

A summary table is produced as for `summary.glm`

, with the additional
