Time Series Simulation Window
Use the Time Series Simulation window to
create a data set of simulated series generated by ARIMA processes.
Access this window from the Tools pull-down menu
in the Develop Models and Manage Forecasting Project windows.
Controls and Fields
- Output Data Set
is the name of the data set to be created. Type in a one or two level
SAS data set name.
is the time interval between observations
(data frequency) in the simulated data set. Type in an interval name
or select one from the popup list.
is the seed for the random number generator used to
produce the simulated time series.
- N Observations
is the number of time periods to simulate.
- Starting Date
is the starting date for the simulated observations.
Type in a date in a form recognizable by a SAS data informat,
for example, 1998:1, feb1997, or 03mar1998.
- Ending Date
is the ending date for the simulated observations.
Type in a date in a form recognizable by a SAS data informat.
- Series to Generate
is the list of variable names and ARIMA processes to simulate.
- Add Series
brings up the ARIMA Process Specification window
to enable you to add entries to the Series to Generate list.
- Delete Series
deletes selected (highlighted) entries from the Series to Generate list.
closes the Time Series Simulation window and performs the specified
simulations and creates the specified data set.
closes the window without creating a simulated data set.
Any options you specified are lost.
