Dealing with the log of zero in regression models

Author and guest post by Eren Ocakverdi

The title of this blog piece is a verbatim excerpt from the Bellego and Pape (2019) paper suggested by Professor David E. Giles in his October reading list. (Editor's note: Professor Giles has recently announced the end of his blog - it is a fantastic resource and will be missed!). The topic is immediately familiar to practitioners who occasionally encounter the difficulty in applied work. In this regard, it is reassuring that the frustration is being addressed and that there is indeed an ongoing quest for the silver bullet.
