Learning Recommendations:

Learners should have a knowledge of statistical inference at a level equivalent to that which would be achieved upon completion of either Inferential Statistics or Inference for Data Analytics 
Basic knowledge of linear algebra (vectors, matrices). Knowledge of linear models and least square estimation which would be achieved upon completion of Data Modelling for Science or Predictive Analytics would be beneficial.

Upon completion of this module students will be able to:

  • Identify the stationarity properties of a time series,
  • Model the time series using Box-Jenkins ARIMA techniques,
  • Estimate parameters for ARIMA models using a variety of procedures,
  • Produce forecasts for a given time series,
  • Be familiar with additional topics such as cointegration, vector auto regressive models.
