I think a first step in getting some help is to summarize your data for easy evaluation. Model fitting (?) will require some information providing some information like;

  1. What is the response variable here
  2. What are the covariates (cofactors and possibly the levels of factors)

Then the data as spread out can be appreciated.

Dear R-users,    

  Attach with is my data..what i want to do is finding a suitable distribution for my data..I want to run a few test like the poisson and the exponential distribution. Please help me on how to find the p-value for poisson as well as the exponential distribution without knowing the parameter. Is it possible?? Thanks in advance.    

  love,
