    Policy chance analysis - time series count data

    Hi, I need some help to determine my approach. For a school project I would like to examine the effect of a policy change in the Danish registration law for certain cars, happening in june 2007. I have a dataset with the number of registrations pr. month from jan-97 to dec-15. If I put...

    Physical interpretation of an AR(n) series

    Hi, I am learning TS analysis but my angle is probably diffent from the usual. Being in six sigma I need to reduce the variability of a process that I can prove is basically AR(3) which with 3 runs on the average per day means one day's runs influence the next day in the mathematical model...

    Inter-subject agreement re timings of (unequal number of) events

    Hi everyone, I am trying to figure out what would be the best statistic to use to quantify the amount of agreement that exists between subjects who were asked to press a button whenever they felt a certain emotion while listening to a short (2min) piece of music. Plotted as time series, the...

    Time Series - Difference over time

    Hello, I'm new in the time series, so I need some help. I have a short time series (5 quarters), with the proportion of a parameter (public transport-user people). I know there are some effects of TS (trend, seasonal, cyclic and random). I would like to testing the (significant) difference...

    Interpretation of an AR model

    hi, looking at process times of a rather complex machine I found that an AR(2) model describes it quite well. Does it make sense to interpret this as an indication that the machine has a "memory" of about 2 runs ? E.g. insufficient cleaning between runs? thanks a lot!

    What method for this problem? [Correlation / Correspondence]

    Hi, I have a data set like the following with some categorical/nominal values (like Gender and Age Group) and a ratio scaled value (DropOut, which is the week after registration in which a person dropped out of a program [so it's never zero or less, and it's not the calender week]): I want...

    Is AR(1)-ARCH(1) covariance stationary?

    I'm becoming confused by this. Say I have the following model: I know that an AR(1) is covariance stationary if |\phi|<1. I also know that an ARCH(1) is covariance stationary if \alpha_0, \alpha_1>0 and \alpha_1<1 . If those conditions hold does that imply that an AR(1)-ARCH(1) is...

    Multiple measurement time series

    Hi dear helper, I have a collection of monitoring data which I want to analyze as to significant differences over time. I have monitored 2 groups of people over 16 months as to how often they feed their livestock per day. Both groups are of different size and each individual has a different...

    Autoregresive (AR) models and stationarity - Contradiction?

    Hello, I have a problem regarding the general understanding of autoregressive (AR) models (and related models, such as MA and AR(I)MA models) which are used to analyze time series. An important assumption in these models is that we have stationarity, which implies that the mean and the...

    time series with bivariate data?

    I have a datetime (yearly) variable which indicates when/if a subject registered, a count of the 400,000 subjects who registered at each facility and those subjects identified as being asked a particular question upon registration, a dichotomous yes/no. The requester asked that their time to...

    Which type of time series to use?

    Hey, I have a data set which includes weekly/monthly sales and questions about customer satisfaction. I have already done EFA/CFA based on these satisfaction questions (turns out it's just one satisfaction factor) I would like to regress sales on satisfaction, but I think I should include a...

    Determining stationarity

    Hi there, I have this current problem to solve, relating to time series analysis Suppose that {et} is a white noise process with variance s2, and that a, b and c are constants. For each of the following processes, determine if they are stationary, and if so, find their mean and autocovariance...

    Reliability measure of price indices

    Is there any method to calculate a reliability score for a price based on the date gap? As an example if the price has not varied over a large period of time that means the std deviation of that price is low then the reliability of that price is not varying is high. On the other hand if...

    Time series

    Hello, I have a question about time series. I have two time series (very similar, they differ just due to the minor calculation method) and I wonder if there is some test to verify if these two time series are statistically significantly identical (equal). I tought about the two-sample...

    Multilevel modeling - dependent variable is not normally distributed

    Hello everybody, I am doing the research, using Multilevel linear modeling (MLM), with dependent variable number of days of payment delays, which is not normally distributed. Is that a problem for MLM? Is it necessary for Y to be normally distributed? I have done a winsorisation- have limited...

    Time Series with Multiple Intervention Dates

    I'm working with a time series in which the same intervention was applied to a large number of items but at different points. Essentially, I have figures by day (and can roll them up by week, month, etc.) and I am trying to figure out what the impact of the intervention is on the figures. The...

    Comparing variability of several independetly time series

    To compare several independently distributed time series, I decided to take a compare their coefficient of variations. Is there any better way to compare them and even group them?

    Simple concrete example of Wold theorem?

    I'm reading the Wold decomposition theorem for time series in http://faculty.chicagobooth.edu/john.cochrane/research/papers/time_series_book.pdf. I've googled this a lot, and I know that there is ample treatment of the subject online. However, the above book seems to be unique in that page 44...
