Time Series Analysis & Forecasting with Stata

Online 2 days (16th September 2021 - 17th September 2021) Stata Intermediate, Introductory
Forecasting, Statistics, Time series


The aim of this course is to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the fundamental concepts behind time series modelling and forecasting with Stata. The course will provide the practical skills necessary to use Stata for modeling and forecasting of economic time series.

Learning objectives:

  • Model and forecast from a univariate AR(FI)MA or multivariate VAR model.
  • Model and forecast from a univariate GARCH (including EGARCH, TARCH, APARCH and GJR models) or a multivariate GARCH model ( including the CCC,DCC, VEC models).
  • Distinguish between stationary and nonstationary series and understand the implications of using nonstationary series
  • Build, estimate and forecast from univariate and multivariate time series models using Stata.
  • Understand and critically evaluate recent research in time series.

This comprehensive webinar is hosted through Zoom and runs over a total of 9 hours, with 4 hours each day (2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon) with an extra Q&A session on the second day.

Day 1

Session 1:

  • Getting started with time series data: visualization and testing.
  • Unit roots tests, types of non –stationarity.
  • Assessing the memory of economic and financial data over time: the auto covariance and autocorrelation functions.
  • Pure time series models of the mean: AR, MA, ARMA, ARFIMA models: introduction, dependence structure and the Box Jenkins methodology to choose the best model.

Session 2:

  • Estimation of AR(I)(FI)MA models in Stata.
  • Post estimation diagnostic tests: is the model good enough? How to improve it.
  • Forecasting with ARMA models.
  • Adding exogenous variables to ARMA models: the ARDL framework.

Day 2

Session 1:

  • Pure time series models of the variance: the GARCH models.
  • GARCH, EGARCH, TARCH, APARCH: estimation and post diagnostic tests in Stata.
  • Do we really need a GARCH? The ARCH test.
  • The ARMA-GARCH framework.

Session 2:

  • Capturing multivariate time dependences: the VAR and MGARCH models.
  • Estimation, testing, post diagnostic tests in Stata.
  • Which model is best for your research? Examples of successful research papers on time series analysis in Stata.
  • Q&A session
