Time-Series Analysis & Forecasting

This course in Time-Series Analysis and Forecasting addresses three fundamental goals: (1) to understand the nature of a variable’s dependence over time, such as trends and seasonality; (2) to describe the dynamic relation among functionally-related time-series variables; and (3) to generate statistically-based forecasts while also characterizing the uncertainty in these forecasts. All participants who complete the course will earn NABE's Certificate in Time-Series Analysis and Forecasting.

Topics to be covered:

  • Point and Interval Forecasting 
  • Evaluation of Forecasts and Composite Forecasting
  • Univariate Analysis: Box-Jenkins Methodology; trends & non-stationarity
  • Dynamic Single Equation Models and Autocorrelation
  • Vector Autoregressions
  • Cointegration and Error Correction Models

Participants should be familiar with the following, which are covered in Applied Econometrics: estimation and hypothesis testing in regression models, dummy (indicator) variables, diagnostics of structural models, autocorrelation, distributed lag models, ARCH and GARCH models, pooling of time-series and cross-sectional data, and multi-equation model applications. The software package EVIEWS will be used by the instructor, and complimentary trial copies of this software will be provided to enrollees by NABE.
