This chapter contains a brief overview of three different topics. First, effects of aggregation of nonlinear models are considered. The second topic is modelling time‐varying seasonal variation in economic time series. Finally, there is a discussion of outliers and nonlinearity, as outliers can lead to erroneous statements about nonlinearity. Also, time series generated by nonlinear models may contain observations that look like outliers but are not.

Keywords: aggregation over time; outliers in economic time series; time‐varying seasonality
