Efficient Estimation of Autoregression Parameters and Innovation Distributions for Semiparametric Integer-Valued AR(p) Models (Subsequently replaced by DP 2008-53)
AbstractInteger-valued autoregressive (INAR) processes have been introduced to model nonnegative integer-valued phenomena that evolve over time. The distribution of an INAR(p) process is essentially described by two parameters: a vector of autoregression coefficients and a probability distribution on the nonnegative integers, called an immigration or innovation distribution. Traditionally, parametric models are considered where the innovation distribution is assumed to belong to a parametric family. This paper instead considers a more realistic semiparametric INAR(p) model: essentially there are no restrictions on the innovation distribution. We provide an (semiparametrically) efficient estimator of the autoregression parameters and the innovation distribution.
