In the 1998 paper entitled Large Cluster Results for Two Parametric Multinomial Extra Variation Models, Nagaraj K. Neerchal and Jorge G. Morel developed an approximation to the Fisher information matrix used in the Fisher Scoring algorithm for finding the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters of the Dirichlet-multinomial distribution. They performed simulation studies comparing the results of the approximation to the results of the usual Fisher Scoring algorithm, for varying dimensions… CONTINUE READING
