    Suitable model?

    Hi, can anyone suggest a suitable model for the following data?

    The data shows the number of radioactive particles detected per day near to a nuclear power station. Emissions occur at random.

    Number of particles 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11+
    Frequency 3 11 31 47 67 74 63 31 18 14 4 2

    Thank-you for any help.

    Poisson, with mean equal to the mean of the data.
