identify_count is a data descriptor function used to identify a count variable and potentially supply a formula and estimation function.

identify_count(name, formula = ~1)



The name of a variable in the input data to be used as count. This should be supplied as bare symbol not a character string.


A formula object that can be used to build the count model. Note this does not need to include treatment since the count models are fit within treatment groups. Default to a null model, ~1.


A object that can be used by specify_models to add information about the count variable to the data description function.
