Course objectives
The aim of this course is to provide students with the necessary knowledge in a comprehensive way with statistical methods suitable to process multidimensional and time series data. Absolvent of this course will be able to use an appropriate mathematical apparatus to multidimensional and time series data processing and apply appropriate statistical software on necessary statistical calculations.
  • Review of Basic Statistical Concepts
    Experiment, sample space, sample point, random variables. Sample and population characteristics. Graphical evaluation of data distribution. Estimation and hypothesis testing. Parametrical and non-parametrical hypothesis tests. Statistical software.
    Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
    ANOVA and basic principles of experimental design. Analysis of variance with one factor and analysis of variance with two factors. Assumptions of ANOVA with two factors. Two-factor ANOVA without interaction and interaction. Kruskal-Wallis nonparametric ANOVA.
    Simple Linear Regression
    Definition of regression analysis - a simple, multiple, linear, nonlinear regression. Simple linear regression analysis - scatter diagram, regression, regression coefficients, adhesion, coefficient of determination, tests of hypotheses. Basic types of nonlinearities, Törnquist curves and their applications in economics.

    Multiple Linear Regression
    Basic terms in multiple linear regression analysis - criteria, predictors, regression hyperplane, the coefficient of determination. Using the regression analysis for nominal predictors and correlation coefficients. Application examples of the economic area (marketing research). Problems in regression analysis: multicollinearity, heteroscedasticity, autocorrelation
    Heteroscedasticity tests (Park test, Bartley test), autocorrelation test (sign test).
    Time Series Analysis
    Types of economic time series. Elemental characteristics of time series. Models of economic time series - decomposition, exponential smoothing, ARIMA. Analytical methods for the determination of trends of time series: regression analysis (least squares method, maximum likelihood method). Synthetic methods: moving averages, exponential smoothing. Analysis of seasonal and random components of time series. Exponential smoothing models of time series (simple, Holt, Winters model). Stochastic process and its stationarity. Fundamentals of ARIMA models: models AR, MA, I, ARIMA. Identification of ARIMA model using the autocorrelation function (ACF) and partial autocorrelation function (PACF). Calculation of ARIMA model, model verification, prediction of the ARIMA model.
