EC 421 Non- Stationary Time Series 1) Intro 2) Stationary, Non Stationary 3) Consequences 4) Detecting 5) Cointegration Non- Stationary Time Series Stationary Variance will explode on you A) Stationary Time Series:- (1) AR Model If expected value and population variance are independent of t. Covariance between two different points in time depend only on difference in time we call the time series weakly stationary. (bounded by 1 in absolute value) Lag Sub this in is getting smaller geometrically declining that means past is going away. Continue to do substitutions for Now take expected value of (2) and if t is large And and therefore independent of time.

If is not auto correlated, i.e. Cov( As Therefore is independent of t. It can be shown that The covariance depends upon not on t but on difference of t and s. B) Stationary Time Series:- 1) Random Walk Let be at Note: effect of pat error does not decline they are permanent. We call this “integrated” that means errors are integrated. is independent of time However Variance of time series of X at time t depends on time t. So variance depends on time and is not stationary.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
