Topic outline

  • Course Overview

    A forecast consists of multiple components, one of which is the trend. In this module we study methods on how to identify and forecast the trend. An important method used to find a trend is linear regression. Linear Regression is useful in other domains than forecasting. For these reasons, linear regression will be an important topic in this course.
