§    ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is to estimate the autocorrelated coefficient by the profile and conditional likelihood function, using longitudinal data. Untrended series from stationary first order normal process are considered.

§    KEYWORDS: Autocorrelation Autocorrelation; orthogonal parameters; untrended series.
