Diagnostics Checking : Recall Z t = X j =1 π j Z t - j + a t Put ˆ a t = Z t - X j =1 ˆ π j Z t - j Residual = actual value - estimated value Residual Analysis 1. Plot residuals ˆ a t against t (See whether trend exists) 2. Histogram of ˆ a t (or standardized residuals), normal-score correlation test (Check normality) 3. Plot ˆ a t against ˆ Z t (check constant variance) 4. Check autocorrelation of residuals. We consider the sample autocorrelation of the residuals, { ˆ r k } . If the residuals follows a white noise process, then the sample acf are approximately uncorrelated and each { ˆ r k } is distributed approximately as Normal with mean 0 and variance 1 /n , where n is the series length. However, residuals, even with a corrected speciﬁed model with eﬃciently estimated parameters, have diﬀerent properties. Properties of the sample acf of residuals for some models For AR(1) model, for large n V ar r 1 ) φ 2 n V ar r k ) 1 - (1 - φ 2 ) φ 2( k
