My experience with overdispersion comes from two sources. Either you
get overdispersion because you have too many zeros, or you have
overdispersion because you have clustering (either temporal or spatial).
To generate count data that has these characteristics, I would think you
would want to build a process model that generates either excess zeros
or clustering, then add an observation model to it. I don't know of a
procedure that does this, but a simple example shouldn't be too
difficult to code.

Subject: Extra-multinomial (Extra-binomial?) variation in SAS
Hey SAS Folks,
I'm wondering if SAS has a function or procedure for generating count
subject to extra-multinomial variation (or extra-binomial variation?)??
For example: Have a multinomial (p,n) distribution with p=(p11,
p12,p21,p22) and n=number of units and want to program for n=1000, p=
(.01, .24, .25, .25)
Also, if there are any R people here, is there something in R I could
to achieve this as well?
