Special Topic in Statistics

Special Topic in 2012 - Forecasting

Forecasting plays an important role in decision making in industry, financial services, government, environmental management, public health, and many other areas.  For example in an uncertain environment, the success of a business or economic policy depends on the ability of managers to foresee and prepare for the future.  

This course is ideal if you are keen to advance your career as a modeller or forecaster or are working in a related area that would benefit from training in modelling or forecasting methods.  It provides extensive training in forcasting and modelling techniques such as smoothing, dynamic regressions, multivariate autoregressions, state space models, and neural networks with a wide range of applications.
