Time series regression books


I am interested in Time series regression and I would like to find 1-2 good books that explain Time series with examples using SAS.

Does anybody know and can propose good books that I can purchase?

I am into agriculture/environmental science if that matters.



Fortran must die
I have yet to find a good book on time series for someone without an advanced math background and I have spent a lot of years looking. I recently ordered the following book, but I have not actually worked with it. It might be useful.


I have large number of links to time series material - if you have a specific question I might be able to help.

This is of some valuewith ARIMA (Duke has a wonderful site for forecasting generally this is part of it http://people.duke.edu/~rnau/411home.htm).


This is for R but has an useful intro to time series.


Time series from an engineering perspective


I just ran into this, it is supposed to be very useful for time series from a business perspective.

An excellent on line book on forecasting


I have not found a good SAS online book. You probably should start with PROC ESM which will generate ARIMA like results without having to do ARIMA (it uses ARIMA algorithms "quasi-Newton and exponential smoothing is essentially a special form of ARIMA in any case). It is as easy as you get for time series.


I am still in the beginning stages of learning to do regression with time series. There are a vast number of ways to do it all of which make different assumptions. My guess is that Proc AutoReg will be the way to go. You can find that through the link I sent for Proc ESM.

Best wishes. It is not an easy journey.

I got the Mihoj book today, it looks good. I will make a report once I use it. :p It is purely applied, indeed the author says upfront that it is designed for those with limited math background who just want to be able to run time series....
