1 CHAPTER 19 TIME SERIES ANALYSIS & FORECASTING Basic Concepts 1. Time Series Analysis BASIC CONCEPTS AND FORMULA The term Time Series means a set of observations concurring any activity against different periods of time. In order to describe this flow of economic activity, the statistician uses a time series. 2. Examples of Time Series Data Following are few examples of time series data: a) Profits earned by a company for each of the past five years. b) Workers employed by a company for each of the past 15 years. c) Number of students registered for CA examination in the institute for the past five years. d) The weekly wholesale price index for each of the past 30 week. e) Number of fatal road accidents in Delhi for each day for the past two months. 3. Components of a Time Series: A time series may contain one or more of the following four components: 1. Secular trend (T): (Long term trend) It is relatively consistent movement of a variable over a long period. 2. Seasonal variation (S): Variability of data due to seasonal influence. 3. Cyclical variation (C): Recurring sequence of points above and below the trend line lasting over more than one year. 4. Irregular variation (I): (random movements) Variations due residual factors that accounts for deviations of the actual time series values from those expected, given the effect of trend, seasonal and seasonal components. Example, erratic movements that do not have any pattern and are usually caused by unpredictable reason like earthquake, fire etc.

2 Advanced Management Accounting 4. Approaches for the Relationship amongst Components of a Time Series There are two approaches for the relationship amongst these components. (a) (b) 5. Trend Y = T S C I (multiplicative model) Y = T+S+C+I (additive model) Note: In multiplicative models S,C and I indexes are expressed as decimal percents Where Y is the result of the four components. The trend is the long-term movement of a time series. Any increase or decrease in the values of a variable occurring over a period of several years gives a trend. If the values of a variables remain statutory over several years, then no trend can be observed in the time series. 6. Methods of Fitting a Straight Line to a Time Series i. Free hand method, ii. iii. iv. The method of semi-averages, The method of moving averages The method of least squares. 7. Methods of Finding Short Period Variations Other Methods of finding short period variations 7.1 Simple Average: Simple Average: The method is very simple: average the data by months or quarters or years and them calculate the average for the period. Then find out, what percentage it is to the grand average. Seasonal Index = MonthlyorQuaterlyAverage GrandAverageofthemonthsorthequaters x100 Same results are obtained if the totals of each month or each quarter are obtained instead of the average of each month or each quarter. 7.2 Ratio-to-Trend Method This method is an improvement over the previous method because this assumes that seasonal variation for a given month is a constant fraction of trend. This method presumably isolates the seasonal factor in the following manner: 19.2

3 Time Series Analysis & Forecasting S C I= T S C I 8. Deseasonalization T Random elements (I) are supposed to disappear when the ratios are averaged. Further, a carefully selected period of years used in computation is expected to eliminate the influence of cyclical fluctuations (C). The process of eliminating seasonal fluctuations or deseasonalization of data consists of dividing each value in the original series by the corresponding value of the seasonal index. 9. Forecasting Time series forecasting methods involve the projection of future values of a variable based entirely on the past and present observation of that variable. 10. Various Forecasting Methods Using Time Series Mean Forecast The simplest forecasting method in which for the time period t. we forecast the value of the series to be equal to the mean of the series. This method is not adequate as trend effects and the cyclical effects are not taken into account in this Naïve forecast In this method, by taking advantage of the fact that there may be high correlation between successive pairs of values in a time series, we forecast the value, for the time period t, to-be equal to the actual value observed in the previous period t that is, time period (t 1): y t = yt Linear Trend Forecast In this method, a linear relationship between the time and the response value has been found from the linear relationship. yt = a+ bx where X will be found from the value of t and a and b are constants Non-linear Trend Forecast In this method, a non-linear relationship between the time and the response value has been found again by least-squares method. Then the value, for the 19.3

4 Advanced Management Accounting Question 1 time period t, will be calculated from the non-linear equation. i.e., y = a+ bx + cx t 2 where X-value will be calculated from the value of t Forecasting will Exponential Smoothing In this method, the forecast value for the time period t is found using exponential smoothing of time series. Specifically, at the time period t. y = y + α( y y ) t t 1 t t 1 where the forecasted value for time period t + 1 ; y t-1 = the forecasted value for time period t.: y t =the observed value for time period t. What is trend? What are the various methods of fitting a straight line to a time series? Trend is the long term movement of a time series. Any increase or decrease in the values of a variable occurring over a period of several years gives a trend. The various methods of fitting a straight line to a time series are: (i) Free hand method. (ii) The method of semi-averages. (iii) The method of moving averages. (iv) The method of least squares. Question 2 Name the various methods of fitting a straight line to a time series and briefly explain any two of them. The various methods of fitting a straight line are: (i) Free hand method (ii) Semi-average (iii) Moving average (iv) Least square 19.4

5 Time Series Analysis & Forecasting Freehand method: First the time series figures are plotted on a graph. The points are joined by straight lines. We get fluctuating straight lines, through which an average straight line is drawn. This method is however, inaccurate, since different persons may fit different trend lines for the same set of data. Method of Semi Averages: The given time series is divided into two parts, preferably with the same number of years. The average of each part is calculated and then a trend line through these averages is filled. Moving Average Method: A regular periodic cycle is identified in the time series. The moving average of n years is got by dividing the moving total by n. The method is also used for seasonal and cyclical variation. Method of Least Squares: The equation of a straight line is Y = A + b X, where X is the time period, say year and Y is the value of the item measured against time, a is the Y intercept and b, the co-efficient of X, indicating the slope of the line. To find a and b, the following normal equations are solved. Y = an + b X XY = a X + b X² Where n is the no. of observation in the series or n = no. of data items. Question 3 Apply the method of link relatives to the following data and calculate seasonal indices. Quarterly Figures Quarter I II III IV Calculation of seasonal indices by the method of link relatives. 19.5

Average of corrected chain relatives = = = Correct chain relatives Seasonal variation index = Question 4 The following table relates to the tourist arrivals during 1990 to 1996 in India: Years : Tourists arrivals: (in millions) Fit a straight line trend by the method of least squares and estimates the number of tourists that would arrives in the year Fitting straight line Trend by the Method of Least squire 19.7

8 Advanced Management Accounting N = 7 Σy = 168 Σx = 0 Σxy = 53 Σx 2 = 28 The equation of the straight line trend is: Y = a + bx y 168 Since x = 0,a = = = 24 N 7 xy 53 And b = = = x 28 Hence Y = x Estimated Number of tourists that would arrive in 2000 Y = (7) = = million. 19.8

9 Time Series Analysis & Forecasting EXERCISE Question 1 Below are given the figures of production (in thousand quintals) of a sugar factory. (i) (ii) (iii) Year Production (thousand quintals) Fit a straight line by the 'least squares' method and tabulate the trend values. Eliminate the trend. What components of the series are thus left over? What is monthly increase in the production of sugar? (i) (ii) (iii) equation of straight line trend is Y = X After eliminating the trend we are left with cyclical and irregular variations. The monthly increase in the production of sugar is Question 2 b/12, i.e / 12 = thousand quintal.
