1 FORECASTING TECHNIQUES ADE 2013 Prof Anoni Espasa TOPIC 1 PART 2 TRENDS AND ACCUMULATION OF KNOWLEDGE. SEASONALITY HANDOUT February 2013

2 MAIN FACTORS CAUSING TRENDS Increases in populaion. Seady inflaion. Technological change. Slowly changes in preferences, habis, aiudes, social regulaions, ec.

3 Trend and accumulaion of knowledge The rends in economic variables can be relaed o he accumulaion of knowledge by humans beings, Bu he incorporaion of such accumulaion of knowledge in he economic variables can be very differen. In any case he accumulaion of knowledge is no a deerminisic process bu a sochasic one: here is uncerainy around i.

4 Differen ways of incorporaing he flow of knowledge. The accumulaion of knowledge implies ha knowledge oday incorporaes all he previous knowledge. The incorporaion of his flow of knowledge in an economic variable is no homogenous. I could ake differen forms and so he TRENDS. 1.- Knowledge a ime incorporaes knowledge a ime (-1) plus a conemporaneous random shock wih zero mean.

5 STOCHACTIC TREND WITH LOCAL OSCILLATIONS IN LEVEL 1 (1) where η is a zero mean sochasic componen. The uni coefficien τ in (1) implies ha pas values are never forgo. This is a possible framework o capure he accumulaion of human knowledge.

6 The series τ can also be formulaed as he sum of he infinie pas values of ɳ, meaning ha Knowledge oday (rends)is he sum of all he sochasic shocks in knowledge τ = ɳ + ɳ -1 + ɳ -2 + These shocks have zero mean, bu he mean of τ as a sequence of zeros is no idenified. In fac τ does no oscillae around a consan mean, bu around he previous value and consequenly τ shows local oscillaions in level around ime.

8 Accumulaion and uni roo process The former model is a finie difference equaion sysem wih persisence.ha is deermined by a sochasic erm X X w 1. This mahemaic framework is denoed as uni roo process and he resuling rend is said o follow and uni roo process. Series generaed by his ype of rend are said o be inegraed of order on: I(1).

9 SERIES I(1) The series X can be formulaed as he sum of he infinie pas W They jus show LOL

10 STOCHASTIC TRENDS: SERIES I(1) Series X in (2) is characerized by he fac ha aking firs differences X X X 1 W The ransformed daa has no evoluiviy. We say ha X is inegraed of order 1 because aking once firs differences he resuling daa is saionary. We denoe X by I(1). Wih he I( ) erminology we indicae ha he rend is sochasic. (3)

11 Example Thus, in more sangnan producive secors, suchs as mining in he Spanish economy, echnological incremens have zero and rend for hese series show local oscilaions in level bu no sysemaic growh, we say ha hey are inegraed series wih zero mean in is incremen: I(1,0).

17 DIVERSITY OF TRENDS Trends are presened in differen economic series depending on how he accumulaion of knowledge is incorporaed and changes in habi and social organizaion in he economic magniude ha each series represen.

18 1 Wih he above scheme he knowledge oday adds o he yeserday knowledge a sochasic facor η which has zero mean, herefore he knowledge accumulaes he pas bu does no grow. Changes in knowledge, η, have zero mean.

19 1 c Wih he above scheme he knowledge oday adds o he yeserday knowledge: A consan erm c and a sochasic facor η wih zero mean. The change in knowledge, η, has a posiive mean, and herefore i grows along ime. NOTE: ha in his model he level is sochasic bu he growh is deerminisic.

20 INTEGRATED SERIES WITH SYSTEMATIC GROWTH The previous Series I(1) only exhibis local oscillaions in level. An inegraed series wih sysemaic growh can be represened as Z = Z -1 + b + w (4) Taking firs differences Z = b + w (5) Comparing: Z in (5) wih X in (3) we see ha X has a zero mean and Z a mean wih value b. Therefore X only has local oscillaions in level and Z sysemaic growh. Boh are I(1) bu very differen.

23 I(1,m) TERMINOLOGY To include he fac ha he mean in X can or canno be zero in series I(1) we use he erminology I(1,m) wih m = 0 if mean of X is zero and m = 1 if mean of X is no zero. So X in (2) is I(1,0) and Z in (a) is I(1,1). In I(1,m) τ = 1 + m gives he number of facors in he rend: 1 or 2.

33 TRENDS WITH NOT CONSTANT GROWTH Technological changes have no a consan mean. I is more realisic o assume ha heir mean level has a segmened srucure. We will denoe as I(1,1 s ) he ime series wih hese characerisics. Example: Spanish GDP by Prof.Leandro Prados de la Escosura.

35 TREND WITH TWO UNIT ROOTS In oher cases srucural changes in he mean can be more frequen and hey can follow an uni roo process, ha makes ha series in level follow a process wih wo uni roos and series wih such a feaure are denoed as I (2,0).

36 Trends wih accumulaion in levels and in growh. The changes in he mean of he growh of knowledge could occur more ofen and hey could also follow a uni roo accumulaion srucure. Then hese rends: show sysemaic growh. he growh is also sochasic. hey have wo uni roos. hey are I(2,0).

37 FULLY STOCHASTIC TRENDS In X = X -1 + b + w he level facor X -1 is sochasic bu he incremen facor b is deerminisic A model wih sochasic incremen facor is X = X -1 + (X -1 - X -2 ) + w (6) Now aking firs differences X = X - X -1 = (X -1 - X -2 ) + w, (7) so in (7) X sill has evoluiviy and in fac is I(1,0). Differencing again 2 X = (X - X -1 ) - (X -1 - X -2 ) = w, (8) w is saionary. Thus is (6) X ~ I(2,0) In (6) we need uni coefficiens(roos) X ~ I(1,0) 2 X ~ I(0,0)

38 EXAMPLES: PRICE INDEXES AND INFLATION PRICE INDEXES,OR MORE SPECIFICALLY ITS LOGARITMIC TRANSFORMATION TYPICALLY ARE I(2,0). THEREFORE, INFLATION FIRST DIFFERENCES OF THE LOGARITHM OF PRICES- ARE I(1,0).I(1,0). INFLATION EVOLVES THROUGH TIME AS GENERATED BY A PROCESS WITH LOCAL OSCILATIONS IN LEVEL. The saionary ransformaion IS OBTAINED BY APPLAYING TWO DIFFERENCES TO THE LOG OF PRICES.

40 Figure 23.7 US Core Inflaion Period: Source: BLS * Core inflaion has been defined as he rae of growh of a consumer price index obained by excluding from he global consumer price index he prices corresponding o food and energy. Here we use he year-on-year rae of growh o measure Core inflaion.

41 ELIMINATING TRENDS BY DIFFERENCING In series I(d,m) differencing d imes we eliminae he rend. In series T(2), also I(0,2), X = a + b + w (9) X = b + (w - w -1 ), (10) X is also saionary, bu he residual erm (W - W -1 ) has bad sochasic properies. This is due o he fac ha in (9) he proper eliminaion of he rend is by regression. Neverheless differencing also removes deerminisic rends. Unless we observed a very sable deerminisic rend we will use I(d,m) models wih d 0.

42 STOCHASTIC TRENDS: SUMMARY Tha a rend is sochasic means ha i is affeced by random shocks which are unforecasable. I is useful o associae rends o accumulaion of he pas. This implies ha he presen of he rend incorporaes he pas wih a uni coefficien (denoed UNIT ROOT in he erminology of finie difference equaions).

43 A LINEAR FORMULATION FOR A STOCHASTIC TREND τ = τ -1 + { growing facor} + ɳ. Possibiliies for he growing facor: 1 o be zero 2 o be deerminisic, a fixed quaniy 3 o be sochasic, accumulaing previous growh. In he firs case he corresponding ime series have no sysemaic growh. Only LOL. In he oher wo cases he series show sysemaic growh. In case 2 he growh has a consan mean. In case 3 he growh shows local oscillaions in level.

44 INTEGRATION IN TRENDS τ = τ -1 + { growing facor} + ɳ. (1) Suppose ha he growh facor (gf) is zero. Then τ = ɳ + ɳ -1 + ɳ -2 + ɳ -3 + ɳ -4 + (2) equals o he sum or INTEGRATION of all he previous shocks. If in equaion (1) he gf is non-zero hen equaion (2) will also include he inegraion of all previous gf s. In his case here is sysemaic growh in he rend. In (1) here is only one uni roo and herefore here is only one inegraion process. The rends are hen I(1), bu wo differen formulaions are possible. I(1) rends wih no growh denoed rends I(1.0)- and rends in which he growh has a consan mean denoed I(1,1) rends.

45 DOUBLE INTEGRATION IN TRENDS τ = τ -1 + { growing facor} + ɳ. (1) The gf in (1) could also include a uni roo, ie anoher accumulaion process. τ = τ -1 + {τ -1 - τ -2 } + ɳ. (3) In (3) here is a uni roo in he levels he coefficien of τ -1.Bu passing τ - 1 o he RHS of (1) we ge τ - τ -1 = {τ -1 - τ -2 } + ɳ. (4) And in (4) sill we have anoher uni roo on he growh. Meaning ha in one we have wo uni roos: - On he levels and - Anoher in he growh. - These rends are I(2). - In ime series wih rends I(d), differencing d ime we ge he saionary ransformaion, ie an I(0) series.

46 STOCHASTIC SEASONALITY

47 Summary of sochasic rends The model for he observed variable is: X = τ + w, (1) where τ is a sochasic rend, which can be seen as relaed on how he incorporaion of knowledge affecs o economic variables. MODELS FOR STOCHASTIC TRENDS: τ = τ -1 + η (2) This rend only shows LOL. τ = τ -1 + c + η (3) This rend shows sysemaic growh wih consan mean in growh. τ = τ -1 + (τ -1 - τ -2 ) + η (4) This rend shows fully sochasic sysemaic growh.

48 Trend models for X Combining (1) wih (2), (3) and (4) we ge hree differen models for economic ime series wih rends: X = X -1 + w (2 ) daa wih LOL I(1,0) X = X -1 + c + w (3 ) daa wih consan mean growh I(1,1). X = X -1 + (X -1 - X -2 ) + w daa wih fully sochasic sysemaic growh I(2,0).

58 DEVIATIONS FROM THE EVOLUTIVE MEAN OF A TIME SERIES A ime series wih rend and seasonaliy could be represened as: where T is he rend facor X = T S W (4) S is he seasonal facor and W is a facor which capures he deviaions of X from he pah of he evoluive facors T and S. By consrucion W does no show evoluive behaviour. Business cycles oscillaions an shor-erm flucuaions are he componens of W. They resul from he ime dependency on he W daa.

64 CONCLUSION Applying regular and seasonal differences we can remove rend and seasonaliy. Laer in he course we will see saisical ess o decide he ype of differences ha we need o apply o a given ime series o eliminae possible rend and seasonaliy. The properies of he regular and seasonal raes of growh of X depend on he model for X.

66 DEVIATIONS OF THE EVOLUTIVITY MEAN FOR A TIME SERIES A ime series coulb be represened wih rend and seasonaliy according o he following model: where T is he rend facor S is he seasonal facor, and X = T S W (4) W is a facor ha capures he deviaion of X from T y S. By consrucion, W does no show evoluiviy behavior. The componens of W are business and shor run cyclical oscillaions. They are he resul from he ime dependence of W.

67 STATIONARY DEPENDENCE (CYCLICAL OSCILLATIONS AND SHORT RUN PERTURBATIONS),

68 DEVIATIONS OF X OVER TREND AND SEASONALITY, THAT WE WILL CALL W, SHOW CORRELATION WITH RESPECT TO PREVIOUS DEVIATIONS. WE NEED TO SPECIFY A MODEL FOR W CONDITIONING OVER THE PAST DEVITATIONS. THIS WILL BE DONE BY SETTING A GENERAL ASSUMPTION FOR THIS CORRELATION.
