Introduction to Time Series

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

This course introduces students to time
series analysis and dynamic econometric models.

Inhoud vak

This course covers both theoretical and practical aspects of time series
econometrics including the analysis of stationary and non-stationary
stochastic processes in economics and finance.

The students are introduced to autoregressive moving average (ARMA)
models, autoregressive distributed lag (ADL) models, and error
correction models (ECM). Furthermore, the course provides both
theoretical and practical insight into parameter estimation in
time-series and the use of these models for forecasting, testing for
Granger causality, and performing policy analysis using impulse response

Finally, the students become familiar with the fundamental problem of
spurious regression in time-series analysis. We find a solution to this
problem by taking a journey into the theory and practice behind
unit-root tests, cointegration tests and error-correction representation


Lectures and practical classes. During practical classes time will be
made for discussing exercises.


Final exam and group assignments – Individual assessment.

Vereiste voorkennis

material provided by the teacher.

Recomended optional reading material:

J. Stock and M. Watson, 2011, Introduction to Econometrics. Prentice

This course in the minor Applied Econometrics is targeted at both
econometrics and non-econometrics students that have knowledge of basic
mathematics, probability and statistics.

Aanbevolen voorkennis

This course builds on the foundations laid either in the sequence of
courses in `Kwantitatieve Methoden` (in the Economics programme) or in
that of `Statistics` and `Business Mathematics` (in the Business
Administration programme). It assumes familiarity with probabily
and statistics. This material corresponds more or less to Part I
(Chapters1-3) in Stock & Watson, and students are recommended to refresh
their memory on this prior to the first lecture.
