APC 1
STA 4XXX
Statistical Techniques for
Time Series and Forecasts (3crs)
Prerequisites:
STA 3163 Statistical Methods I or
ECO 3411 Business/Economics Statistics
Corequisites:
None
Course Description:
This course is an introduction to the analysis of time series data using time-domain techniques. It begins with simple graphical and weighted moving average analyses that yield commonly-used decompositions and forecasts. More complex autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) statistical models will be developed for stationary and non-stationary series, and for regression with time-series errors. These techniques will be applied to examples in a variety of disciplines, ranging from meteorology to economics. This course is recommended for students interested in an actuarial career. No new faculty or additional resources are required for this course.
