We introduce the dispersion models with a regression structure to extend the generalized linear models, the exponential family nonlinear models (Cordeiro and Paula, 1989) and the proper dispersion models (Jørgensen, 1997a). We provide a matrix expression for the skewness of the maximum likelihood estimators of the regression parameters in dispersion models. The formula is suitable for computer implementation...
