1. Course description.
The “Time Series Forecasting with R” training course will provide you with essential knowledge to allow wrangling, processing, analysis and forecasting of time series data using specialised libraries such as ts, prophet, forecast and zoo for R programming language. Whether you wish to analyse financial data, predict sales or marketing revenue, or understand temporal patterns in your social, medical or economic data, this course will provide you with theoretical and practical understanding on how to clean, visualise and model time series data in your workflows using R programming language.
During the course, you will first learn to manipulate the imported data, extract necessary date/time stamps and transform the processed data into supported time series R objects. You will then proceed to perform essential time series exploratory and decomposition operations, calculate selected moving/rolling single-value statistics, convert between differing time frequencies, visualise and prepare data for predictions. The forecasting part will include sessions on estimating linear, non-linear and locally-weighted trends, multiple regression models, random walks, ARMA and ARIMA approaches.
The course will run for two days (Monday and Tuesday) between 9:30am and 5:00pm and will consist of alternating lecture-style presentations and practical tutorials. The example datasets used during tutorial sessions will come from social sciences, psychology, business and finance fields, however the contents may vary depending on specific interests of participants (based on the Participant’s Skills Inventory). There will be two 15-minute coffee/tea breaks and one 1-hour lunch break on each day of the course.
