The generalized Poisson distribution (GPD) has been found useful in many areas of study such as engineering, manufacturing, survival analysis, genetic, marketing research, and branching processes. In this paper, we obtain a test for testing the homogeneity of restricted generalized Poisson series against a general class of alternatives. Approximations to the distribution of the test statistics under the null hypothesis are provided.
