Stationary count time series models

Early View

Abstract During the last 20–30 years, there was a remarkable growth in interest on approaches for stationary count time series. We consider popular classes of models for such time series, including thinning‐based models, conditional regression models, and Hidden‐Markov models. We review and compare important members of these model families, having regard to stochastic properties such as the dispersion and autocorrelation structure. Our survey covers univariate and multivariate count data, as well as unbounded and bounded counts. We also discuss an illustrative data example. Besides this critical presentation of the current state‐of‐the‐art, some existing challenges and opportunities for future research are identified.
