Dear All,

I need to fit a model of absenteeism (ABSENT=number of days absent from work in the last 4 weeks, ranging from 0 to 28) using the following sample:

    - Sample size: 8754
    - Proportion of zeros in the sample: 80,1%.
    - Inconditional Mean (ABSENT): 0.700137080 
    - Inconditional Std. Dev. (ABSENT):  3.59146868

I would appreciate it if you provide any insight on what could be the best model to apply in this case.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.

Best regards,
