**Some notes on the Poisson distribution People**

Hi Fran, In my R Companion textbook, I found another way to test for overdispersion. If you divide Residual deviance / residual df and the value is above 1.5 (which is generally considered the threshold), you should use a quasi model.... However, if you take the square root of the variance, called the standard deviation, it tells you by how much you can expect your actual results to vary, on average. The square root of 18.75 is 4.33, which means you can expect the number of red marbles to be between 21 (25 minus 4) and 29 (25 plus 4) for each 100 selections.

The Poisson and Exponential Distributions The binomial distribution deals with the number of successes in a fixed number of independent trials, and the geometric distribution deals with the time between successes in a series of independent trials....

What the other answers already suggest is to compare mean and variance. If mean equals variance then it could be Poisson; If mean is less than veriaance then it could be negative binomial...

Poisson Regression Models are similar to Logistic Regression in many ways–they both use Maximum Likelihood Estimation, they both require a transformation of the dependent variable. Anyone familiar with Logistic Regression will find the leap to Poisson Regression easy to handle.
