SUMMARY. A family of discrete multivariate Poisson-stopped-sum distributions is studied. Associations are non-negative and univariate marginal distributions can be any specified collection of univariate Poisson-stopped sum distributions. Theoretical and numerical results are given when marginal distributions are chosen from: the negative binomial, the Neyman Type A, the Polya-Aeppli, the Lagrangian Poisson, and the Poisson.
