Rich, I also assume you must be modeling some type of aggregate (US-level) count, so I wonder if an ecological growth curve could be fit to the series: Yang, C.C., Yang, C.C., & Yeh, K.H. (2005). Ecological-Inference-Based Latent Growth Models: Modeling Changes of Alienation. Quality & Quantity, 39(2), 125-135. I have some other papers that you might want to take a peak at, but unfortunately the nifty, pre-programmed Stata-specific solution seems elusive. :) For example, Wu and Cao (2011) apply their blockwise empirical likelihood approach to analyze counts on polio cases in the US and daily non-accidental deaths in Toronto -- so a bit similar to your case in having only one geographic area and one outcome (they also have one or two time-varying covariates but I don't think these would be required to use the approach). Schmidt, A.M., & Pereira, J.B.M. (2011). Modelling Time Series of Counts in Epidemiology. International Statistical Review, 79(1), 48–69. Wu, R., & Cao, J. (2011).
