Time Series Analysis and Modelling Course

INTRODUCTION

The course will show how economic and financial time series can be modeled and analyzed. The aim is to provide understanding and insight into the methods used, as well as explaining the technical details. Statistical modeling will be demonstrated using the Stata Software and participants will be given the opportunity to use Stata in class. Statistical modeling will be demonstrated using the Stata Software.

DURATION

5 Days

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Participants are expected to have attended the previous course on Data Management, Graphics and Statistical analysis using Stata or to be familiar with Stata software.

OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the definitions, features and objectives of time series modeling.

  • Understand descriptive analysis of time series, plots, aggregation, smoothing and regression techniques.

  • Understand and conduct periodic regression and ARIMA modeling using stationary time series.

  • Using ARIMA modeling (Box & Jenkins), understand and use auto-correlation functions and partial auto-correlation functions to study how much an observation at a given time is related to observation at previous lags.
