x13_arima_analysis(endog, maxorder=(2, 1), maxdiff=(2, 1), diff=None, exog=None, log=None, outlier=True, trading=False, forecast_years=None, retspec=False, speconly=False, start=None, freq=None, print_stdout=False, x12path=None, prefer_x13=True)¶
Perform x13-arima analysis for monthly or quarterly data.
endog : array-like, pandas.Series
The series to model. It is best to use a pandas object with a DatetimeIndex or PeriodIndex. However, you can pass an array-like object. If your object does not have a dates index then
freqare not optional.
maxorder : tuple
The maximum order of the regular and seasonal ARMA polynomials to examine during the model identification. The order for the regular polynomial must be greater than zero and no larger than 4. The order for the seaonal polynomial may be 1 or 2.
maxdiff : tuple
The maximum orders for regular and seasonal differencing in the automatic differencing procedure. Acceptable inputs for regular differencing are 1 and 2. The maximum order for seasonal differencing is 1. If
diffis specified then
maxdiffshould be None. Otherwise,
diffwill be ignored. See also
diff : tuple
Fixes the orders of differencing for the regular and seasonal differencing. Regular differencing may be 0, 1, or 2. Seasonal differencing may be 0 or 1.
maxdiffmust be None, otherwise
exog : array-like
log : bool or None
If None, it is automatically determined whether to log the series or not. If False, logs are not taken. If True, logs are taken.
outlier : bool
Whether or not outliers are tested for and corrected, if detected.
trading : bool
Whether or not trading day effects are tested for.
forecast_years : int
Number of forecasts produced. The default is one year.
retspec : bool
Whether to return the created specification file. Can be useful for debugging.
speconly : bool
Whether to create the specification file and then return it without performing the analysis. Can be useful for debugging.
start : str, datetime
Must be given if
endogdoes not have date information in its index. Anything accepted by pandas.DatetimeIndex for the start value.
freq : str
Must be givein if
endogdoes not have date information in its index. Anything accapted by pandas.DatetimeIndex for the freq value.
print_stdout : bool
The stdout from X12/X13 is suppressed. To print it out, set this to True. Default is False.
x12path : str or None
The path to x12 or x13 binary. If None, the program will attempt to find x13as or x12a on the PATH or by looking at X13PATH or X12PATH depending on the value of prefer_x13.
prefer_x13 : bool
If True, will look for x13as first and will fallback to the X13PATH environmental variable. If False, will look for x12a first and will fallback to the X12PATH environmental variable. If x12path points to the path for the X12/X13 binary, it does nothing.
res : Bunch
A bunch object with the following attributes:
- results : str The full output from the X12/X13 run.
- seasadj : pandas.Series
The final seasonally adjusted
- trend : pandas.Series
The trend-cycle component of
- irregular : pandas.Series
The final irregular component of
- stdout : str The captured stdout produced by x12/x13.
- spec : str, optional
retspecis True. The only thing returned if
This works by creating a specification file, writing it to a temporary directory, invoking X12/X13 in a subprocess, and reading the output directory, invoking exog12/X13 in a subprocess, and reading the output back in.
