....2.3 Timeseries models
Timeseries is an ordered sequence of values of a variable at equally spaced time intervals. Timeseries occur frequently when looking at industrial data. The essential difference between modeling data via timeseries methods and the other methods is that Timeseriesanalysis accounts for the fact that data points taken over time may have an internal structure such as autocorrelation, trend or seasonal variation that should be accounted for. A Time-series model explains a variable with regard to its own past and a random disturbance term. Special attention is paid to exploring the historic trends and patterns (such as seasonality) of the timeseries involved, and to predict the future of this series based on the trends and patterns identified in the model. Since timeseries models only require historical observations of a variable, it is less costly in data collection and model estimation.
. Timeseries models can broadly be categorized into linear and nonlinear Models. Linea models depend linearly on previous data points. They include the autoregressive (AR) models, the integrated (I) models, and the moving average (MA)...

American InterContinental University
Abstract
In this brief, I will demonstrate selected perceptions of the company Nordstrom, Inc., a retailer that specializes in fashion apparel with over 12 million dollars in sales last year. I will research, review, and analyze perceptions of the company, create graphs to show qualitative and quantitative analysis, and provide a summary of my findings.
Introduction
Nordstrom, Inc. is a retailer that specializes in fashion apparel for men, women and kids that was founded in 1901. The company is headquartered in Seattle, Washington with over 61,000 employees world-wide as of February 2, 2013. (Business Wire, 2014)
Nordstrom, Inc. offers on online store, e-commerce, retail stores, mobile commerce and catalogs to its consumers. It operates 117 full-line stores within the United States and 1 store in Canada, 167 Nordstrom Rack stores, 1 clearance store under the Last Chance Banner, 1 philanthropic treasure & bond store called Trunk Club and 2 Jeffrey boutiques. The option of shopping online is also available at www.nordstrom.com along with an online private sale subsidiary Hautelook. They have warehouses, also called fulfillment centers, which manages majority of their shipping needs that are located in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. (Business Source Premier, 2014)
Nordstrom, Inc. continues to make investments in their e-commerce...

...TimeSeriesAnalysis
This (not surprisingly) concerns the analysis of data collected over time ... weekly values, monthly values, quarterly values, yearly values, etc. Usually the intent is to discern whether there is some pattern in the values collected to date, with the intention of short term forecasting (to use as the basis of business decisions). We will write yt = response of interest at time t (we usually think of these as equally spaced in clock time). Standard analyses of business timeseries involve:
1) smoothing/trend assessment
2) assessment of/accounting for seasonality
3) assessment of/exploiting "serial correlation"
These are usually/most eﬀectively done on a scale where the "local" variation in yt is approximately constant.
Smoothing TimeSeries
There are various fairly simple smoothing/averaging methods. Two are "ordinary moving averages" and "exponentially weighted moving averages."
Ordinary Moving Averages For a "span" of k periods,
e yt = moving average through time t yt + yt−1 + yt−2 + · · · + yt−k−1 = k Where seasonal eﬀects are expected, it is standard to use
k = number of periods per cycle
Exponentially Weighted Moving Averages These weight observations less heavily as one moves back in time from the current period. They are typically...

Question Sheet
In this quiz we will review non-linearity and model transformations covered in lectures 6 and 7.
Question 1: Logarithms
(i) The interpretation of the slope coefficient in the model Yi = β0 + β1 ln(Xi ) + ui is as follows:
(a) a 1% change in X is associated with a β1 % change in Y.
(b) a 1% change in X is associated with a change in Y of 0.01 β1 .
(c) a change in X by one unit is associated with a β1 100% change in Y.
(d) a change in X by one unit is associated with a β1 change in Y.
(ii) The interpretation of the slope coefficient in the model ln(Yi ) = β0 + β1 Xi + ui is as follows:
(a) a 1% change in X is associated with a β1 % change in Y.
(b) a change in X by one unit is associated with a 100β1 % change in Y.
(c) a 1% change in X is associated with a change in Y of 0.01β1 .
(d) a change in X by one unit is associated with a β1 change in Y.
(iii) The interpretation of the slope coefficient in the model ln(Yi ) = β0 + β1 ln(Xi ) + ui is as
follows:
(a) a 1% change in X is associated with a β1 % change in Y.

...REGRESSIONANALYSIS
Correlation only indicates the degree and direction of relationship between two variables. It does not, necessarily connote a cause-effect relationship. Even when there are grounds to believe the causal relationship exits, correlation does not tell us which variable is the cause and which, the effect. For example, the demand for a commodity and its price will generally be found to be correlated, but the question whether demand depends on price or vice-versa; will not be answered by correlation.
The dictionary meaning of the ‘regression’ is the act of the returning or going back. The term ‘regression’ was first used by Francis Galton in 1877 while studying the relationship between the heights of fathers and sons.
“Regression is the measure of the average relationship between two or more variables in terms of the original units of data.”
The line of regression is the line, which gives the best estimate to the values of one variable for any specific values of other variables.
For two variables on regressionanalysis, there are two regression lines. One line as the regression of x on y and other is for regression of y on x.
These two regression line show the average relationship between the two variables. The regression...

Re: StatisticAnalysis on price settings
Various hypothesis tests were compared as well as several multiple regressions in order to identify the factors that would manipulate the selling price of Ford Mustangs. The data being used contains observations on 35 used Mustangs and 10 different characteristics.
The test hypothesis that price is dependent on whether the car is convertible is superior to the other hypothesis tests conducted. The analysis performed showed that the test hypothesis with the smallest P-value was favorable, convertible cars had the smallest P-value.
The data that is used in this regressionanalysis to find the proper equation model for the relationship between price, age and mileage is from the Bryant/Smith Case 7 Tom’s Used Mustangs. As described in the case, the used car sales are determined largely by Tom’s gut feeling to determine his asking prices.
The most effective hypothesis test that exhibits a relationship with the mean price is if the car is convertible. The RegressionAnalysis is conducted to see if there is any relationship between the price and mileage, color, owner and age and GT. After running several...
