Post a reply: How to Interpret Index of Dispersion (ID) in ENA SMART Output?

Use of en-net is subject to the Terms and Conditions.

The Index of Dispersion (ID) indicates the degree to which the cases are aggregated into certain clusters (the degree to which there are "pockets"). It explains three conditions separately. Condition 1. If the ID is less than 1 and p > 0.95 it indicates that the cases are UNIFORMLY. 2.If the ID is less than 1 and p value is between 0.05 and 0.95 the cases appear to be randomly 3. if ID is higher than 1 and p is less than 0.05 the cases are aggregated into certain clusters. But I have encountered that ID>1 and P>0.05. So How can I state such result which may be considered as condition 4? With Regards
