Abstract

In integrated population modelling in ecology, where data from multiple surveys are

analysed simultaneously, the Kalman filter may be used to approximate a component likelihood

for a state space model of population count data.We evaluate a new method for initiating this

Kalman filter, based on a stable age distribution. The new method is illustrated and compared

with alternative approaches by application to data on the grey heron.The new method is simple

to use, extends naturally to the case of multivariate time series of count data and performs well

in a simulation study.
