A Gentle Introduction to the Box-Jenkins Method for Time Series Forecasting

A Gentle Introduction to the Box-Jenkins Method for Time Series Forecasting

The Autoregressive Integrated Moving Average Model, or ARIMA for short is a standard statistical model for time series forecast and analysis. Along with its development, the authors Box and Jenkins also suggest a process for identifying, estimating, and checking models for a specific time series dataset. This process is now referred to as the Box-Jenkins […]

How to Visualize Time Series Residual Forecast Errors with Python

Forecast errors on time series regression problems are called residuals or residual errors. Careful exploration of residual errors on your time series prediction problem can tell you a lot about your forecast model and even suggest improvements. In this tutorial, you will discover how to visualize residual errors from time series forecasts. After completing this […]

How to Check if Time Series Data is Stationary with Python

How to Check if Time Series Data is Stationary with Python

Time series is different from more traditional classification and regression predictive modeling problems. The temporal structure adds an order to the observations. This imposed order means that important assumptions about the consistency of those observations needs to be handled specifically. For example, when modeling, there are assumptions that the summary statistics of observations are consistent. […]
