The main subject of this paper is a combined integer-valued autoregressive
time series with both positive and negative values, based on a new thinning operator. Some important properties are analyzed. Estimators of the unknown parameters are derived and their asymptotic behavior is analyzed. A simulation and an application on real-data are also shown. In the end, a mechanism for identification and prediction of the latent dimensions of the model are presented.
