Statistical issues with event data and the shape of the solutions

Event Data Workshop, Istanbul, Turkey, December 02nd to December 04th, 2011

The paper discusses event data, their statistical properties, including missing data and measurement issues. It suggests appropriate methods for their analysis, and notes that inappropriate methods seem to be the norm. It also provides a brief review of inductive scaling-related methods for multivariate time series count data and some discussion of the virtues of explicit measurement modeling for effective data source combination and for forecasting.
