    Negative Binomial Regression and Type I Errors

    Hi,

    I've completed three test of negative binomial regression. One test had 14 independent variables, and the other two had 7 independent variables each. So in total I've looked at 28 IVs across the three tests.

    In terms of risk of Type I errors, is this not really an issue as I've only run three tests, or is it potentially an issue as I've looked at 28 independent variables?

    Any advice would be great!

    Thanks

    A little confused, by test you mean models examining coefficients' significance?


    Models all had the same DV but a mix of difference IVs with some used in multiple models?
    Stop cowardice, ban guns!

    Hi, sorry stats is not my strong point. Yes I meant that I had 3 models but each IV only featured in one of the models. All had the same DV. So I had an assessment scale with a total of 28 items split across three subscales. Am I making any sense?

    Thanks
