Stationary time series

A longitudinal measure in which the process generating returns is identical over time.

Stationary Time Series

In statistics, a time series in which the data in the series do not depend on time. That is, the mean, variance, and covariance of all data in the time series are adjusted to reflect true values not dependent on time or seasonality.

By taking natural log transformation and successive differencing, one can convert the non stationary time series into a stationary series.
Equation 1 contains no intercept and trend; this means that X is a stationary time series with a zero mean if the null hypothesis is rejected.

However, when a shock occurs to a stationary time series there is a tendency for the series to return to the long-run mean of the series.
Conclusion: In time series modeling of annual groundnut production amounts from the period of 1950-2015, the non-stationary time series were converted into stationary time series after taking the first difference of the data.
Responding to criticisms of the original Dickey and Fuller (1979) ADF unit root test from Gamber and Sorensen, Haslag, Nieswiadomy, and Slottje (1994) apply the unit root tests of Phillips and Perron (1988) and suggest that significant nonlinearities are not present in the [real] net discount ratio and that the variable can be represented as a stationary time series" (p.
where, all variables are stationary time series, [DELTA] is the first difference operator and the [R1.sub.t-1], [R2.sub.t-1] and [R3.sub.t-1] are the lagged values of the error correction terms derived from the long run cointegration equation.

After taking the first differences of the original (non-stationary) time series data on cotton lint, stationary time series data were obtained and exposed to cointegration analysis to determine whether any long-term relationships among the variables exist and whether the series were integrated.
Shocks to a stationary time series may be temporary.
According to the operational definition of Wiener-Granger causality in the time domain, one covariance stationary time series at causes another covariance stationary time series [b.sub.t], if better forecasts of [b.sub.t] can be made by using the knowledge of at, for t < 0, after exploiting all relevant information on past values of [b.sub.t].
In a previous article in this Journal (Haslag, Nieswiadomy, and Slottje, 1991), we provided evidence consistent with the notion that the net discount ratio is a stationary time series. Gamber and Sorensen's comment reexamines this issue and claims that the net discount ratio is nonstationary.
