Table 1 Comparing CPP method with nonparametric eB method in estimation of the unconditional mean E(D t ). The theoretical unconditional mean at t was calculated based on the compound Poisson process model, i.e. E(D t ) = Nq t where q t was calculated based on the CPP model. The entries in the row of CPP or SR are the Mean and root of Mean Squared Error(rMSE) (in parentheses) based on 200 Monte Carlo samples. A -(-) indicates that the mean or rMSE was not calculated because of extremely large or negative estimates from the SR method. For (I), N q1 and S were 5000, 0.36 and 3000; for (II), 10000, 0.375, 6000, and for (III) 10000, 0.221, 5000 respectively.
