Time Series Basics

Time Series Basics

Learn the fundamentals of time series data.

About this course

 

The Time Series Basics course covers some fundamental concepts about time series data. Completion of this course will enable you to move on to more advanced courses on time series preparation, modeling, and forecasting.

This course covers some theoretical knowledge about time series data and the objectives of time series analysis. In each section of the course, we begin with video lessons that teach key concepts on time series, such as the properties and use cases, the long and wide data formats, time series decomposition, and objectives of time series analysis.
