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. […]
