Definition: A Poisson distribution with exposure values is defined as a set of observed counts $y = \left\lbrace y_1, \ldots, y_n \right\rbrace$, independently distributed according to a Poisson distribution with common rate $\lambda$ and a set of concurrent exposures $x = \left\lbrace x_1, \ldots, x_n \right\rbrace$:

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