Let $X_n = \Sigma_{i=1}^{\infty} a_i \varepsilon_{n-i}$, where the $\varepsilon_i$ are iid with mean 0 finite fourth moment and the $a_i$ are regularly varying with index $-\beta$ where $\beta \epsilon (1/2, 1)$ so that ${X_n}$ has long-range dependence. This covers an important class of the fractional ARIMA process. For $r \geq 0$, let $Y_{N, r} = \sum_{n=1}^N \sum_{1\leq j_1 < \dots < j_r} \Pi_{s=1}^r a_{j_s}, Y_{N, 0} = N, \sigma_{N, r}^2 = \Var(Y_{N, r})$ and $F^{(r)} =$ the rth derivative of the distribution function of $X_n$. The $Y_{N, r}$ are uncorrelated and are stochastically decreasing in r. For any positive integer $p < (2\beta - 1)^{-1}$, it is shown under mild regularity conditions that, with probability 1, $$\sum_{n=1}^N I(X_n \leq x) = \sum_{r=0}^p (-1)^r F^{(r)} (x) Y_{N,r} + o(N^{-\lambda} \sigma_{N,p})\\ \text{uniformly for all $x \epsilon\Re \forall 0 < \lambda < (\beta - 1/2) \wedge (1/2 - p(\beta - 1/2))$}.$$ This generalizes a host of existing results and provides the vehicle for a number of statistical applications.
