Title: US Mass Shootings as a Non-Homogeneous Poisson Process
Author(s): Yew-Meng Koh*
Companies: Hope College
Keywords: Non-homogeneous Poisson process; US Mass shootings; Variable selection; Intensity parameter

Modelling US mass shooting incidents as a non-homogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) necessitates the estimation of the time-dependent intensity of the process. In this study, we focus on this NHPP intensity, compare its levels as a function of time, and utilise the NHPP model fit for variable selection. Relevant conclusions from various models will be presented and discussed.
