The data for the homework assignment is available in EasyReg space delimited text format (*) and in Excel CSV format (**). You may treat the time series involved as an annual time series, starting from year 1. This time series is an artificially generated stationary ARMA process.
Figure out how this time series was generated, and report how you have determined the most parsimoneous model for this data.
If you are going to use EasyReg for this exercise, upgrade it first to the latest version. The procedure for importing these files in EasyReg is explained in EASYREG.PDF.
