Abstract : This paper presents a classification of statistical models using a simple and logical framework. Some remarks are made about the historical appearance of each type of model and the practical problems that motivated them. It is argued that the current stages of the statistical methodology for model building have arisen in response to the needs of more sophisticated procedures for building dynamic-explicative types of models. Some potentially important topics for future research are included. (Author)
