LRC Revenue Estimate Model Explanation - Holt-Winters Model - Level, Trend, and Observed - Year 2000 to Year 2017 - Page 100:02:06
The Holt-Winters Model uses recent data more heavily. For example, statistics from Year 2017 are weighed more than Year 1999.00:02:55
The random element is the last component in the Holt-Winters Model.00:04:06
Auto-Regressive Integrated Moving Average (ARIMA) Model - Jeff Mehlhaff indicated he was using this new method along with the Holt-Winters Method to help make a more accurate economic forecast. - Page 200:04:25
Holt-Winters and Auto-Regressive Integrated Moving Average are two different models that use the same historical data. The p represents auto-regressive terms, the d represents the differences of the data, q the moving average components. The large P, D, and Q represent the seasonal aspect of the data. Random events can also play a role on the moving average. - Page 200:05:25
The Auto-Regressive Integrated Moving Average Model (ARIMA) runs thousands of computations and picks the best one. - Page 200:06:59
