Definition: Poisson-distributed data are defined as a set of observed counts $y = \left\lbrace y_1, \ldots, y_n \right\rbrace$, independent and identically distributed according to a Poisson distribution with rate $\lambda$:

\[\label{eq:Poiss} y_i \sim \mathrm{Poiss}(\lambda), \quad i = 1, \ldots, n \; .\]
