Savani, Vippal and Zhigljavsky, Anatoly Alexandrovich ORCID: 2006. Efficient Estimation of Parameters of the Negative Binomial Distribution. Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods 35 (5) , pp. 767-783. 10.1080/03610920500501346

In this article we investigate a class of moment-based estimators, called power method estimators, which can be almost as efficient as maximum likelihood estimators and achieve a lower asymptotic variance than the standard zero term method and method of moments estimators. We investigate different methods of implementing the power method in practice and examine the robustness and efficiency of the power method estimators.
