This project aims to develop Zero-Modified (e.g. Inflated or Zero Deflated) models for time series with discrete data. The models developed in this project originate from some of the Zero-Modified models of the Power Series family (Poisson, Generalized Poisson, Binomial, Negative Binomial, COM-Poisson among others). In this work these models will be defined in the context of time series to accommodate time correlated count data with excess (or deficit) zeros. Inference methods based on the classical likelihood approach andthe Bayesian approach together with Markov Chain Monte Carlo techniques will be considered. The project also provides relevant applications on real problems.
