This article evaluates the performance of two estimators namely, the Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) and Whittle's Estimator (WE), through a simulation study for the Generalised Autoregressive (GAR) model. As expected, it is found that for the parameters and σ2, the MLE and WE have a better performance than Method of Moments (MOM) estimator. For the parameter δ, MOM sometimes appears to have a slightly better performance than MLE and WE, possibly due to truncation approximations associated with the hypergeometric functions for calculating the autocorrelation function. However, the MLE and WE can be used in practice without loss of efficiency.
