Abstract Since Griliches first studied the adoption of hybrid corn in the United State; increasing attention has been given to the effect of the diffusion of products am processes in the literature on technological change. Diffusion modelling has, in larg part, been confined to long-standing innovations. This paper is concerned wit problems that arise when a recently marketed innovation is analysed in a context i: which the potential user population is unknown and is variable during the diffusio period. These circumstances require modifications to the usual analyses of diffusior We indicate several modifications to the widely used statistical techniques whic enable these issues to be analysed. Some empirical results on the diffusion of the ne\ drug Cimetidine are reported.
