betareg: Beta Regression

Beta regression for modeling beta-distributed dependent variables, e.g., rates and proportions. In addition to maximum likelihood regression (for both mean and precision of a beta-distributed response), bias-corrected and bias-reduced estimation as well as finite mixture models and recursive partitioning for beta regressions are provided.
