How to Decompose Time Series Data into Trend and Seasonality

How to Decompose Time Series Data into Trend and Seasonality

Time series decomposition involves thinking of a series as a┬ácombination of level, trend, seasonality, and noise components. Decomposition provides a useful abstract model for thinking about time series generally and for better understanding problems during time series analysis and forecasting. In this tutorial, you will discover time series decomposition and how to automatically split a […]

How to Reframe Your Time Series Forecasting Problem

How to Reframe Your Time Series Forecasting Problem

You do not have to model your time series forecast problem as-is. There are many ways to reframe your forecast problem that can both simplify the prediction problem and potentially expose more or different information to be modeled. A reframing can ultimately result in better and/or more robust forecasts. In this tutorial, you will discover […]

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 […]
