Workshop on Time Series Analysis

Time series occur in almost all aspects of data collection, and yet often pose some interesting challenges in their analysis and use.

Going from the poll I conducted, there appears to be a lot of interest in this, so the next series of workshops will cover using R to analyse time series.

Starting with some simple models, this workshop will cover the various issues that most commonly occur, such as dealing with serial correlation, stationarity, and periodicity.

The format of the workshop will follow the formula - relatively informal, each participant is strongly encouraged to bring a laptop, and the emphasis is on getting something useful out of the workshop rather than covering all the material.

A small fee will be charged per person to cover the cost of the venue, and I will try to have all the files, sample code etc available in advance to help speed things up. Everything will be uploaded to the files section here, and I will provide a link to a github repository once it is ready.

Attendence is open to any and all who are interested, and my aim is to make the content as accessible as possible.

If anyone has any questions, comments or issues they would like to raise, please get in touch with me.

    I'd just like to say that Mick did a really good job of teaching the subject last night, fair play; I learned a lot.

    Really great workshop yet again Mick, looking forward to getting down to more TSA in the next one. Love the Github repo and the handout is spot on! Thanks again for your time and effort as top notch across the board.

    Great workshop Mick! Since I'm not familiar with R yet, I liked the fact the code and the slides were available from the start. Looking forward for the next meetup!

      Yep, and feel free to access the github repo and make suggestions and edits etc. All input is welcome.

    I recommend everyone attending download these files as it will make following the workshop that much simpler. There is good wifi available at the venue so you will be able to download the files there.

    It is also highly recommended that each participant have their own laptop (though in the past some people have told me they were happy to be sharing one with someone else), as I tend to approach these workshops in a very discursive and interactive way.

    I have added the files for this workshop in a zip file. It is accessible in the Files section for this Meetup group.

    For those inclined, this is also available as github repository:

    Some of my coworkers might be interested in this, but Meetup is blocked at work. Would someone be ale to email me a flier?

      Ah, no problem, wasn't sure if you got the announcement email or not. That's great, let me know if you need anything else.

    Not yet. I will probably use the book "Introductory Time Series with R" by Cowpertwait and Metcalfe. It is one of the "Use R" series.

    I also can highly recommend "The Analysis of Time Series" by Chris Chatfield.

    I intend to post the worksheet, files, code etc in advance, and notification will be put up here once it is ready.
