  The time series type of forecasting methods, such as exponential smoothing, moving average and trend analysis, employ historical data to estimate future outcomes. A time series is a group of data that’s recorded over a specified period, such as a company’s sales by quarter since the year or the annual production of Coca Cola since   The Office of the Director at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction gives overarching management to the nine centers, which include the.

forecasts, conflicts among decision makers, and policy considerations. To select a quantitative method, consider the level of knowledge about relationships, the amount of change involved, the type of data, the need for policy analysis, and the extent of domain knowledge. When selection is difficult, combine forecasts from different methods. Forecasting is the process of making predictions of the future based on past and present data and most commonly by analysis of trends. A commonplace example might be estimation of some variable of interest at some specified future date. Prediction is a similar, but more general term. Both might refer to formal statistical methods employing time series, cross-sectional or .
