Assuming a basic understanding of multiple regression analysis (such as with an introductory course on econometric/quantitative methods), this accessible introduction to time series analysis shows how to develop models capable of forecasting, interpreting and testing hypothesis concerning economic data using well established as well as modern techniques. Based on real-world data and with the help of interactive software such as Eviews we will study and apply key concepts such as ARIMA, unit roots, causality, cointegration, deterministic and stochastic, trends, volatility, outliers, structural breaks, seasonality, vector autoregressive models.
