Help with forecasting/prediction

Hi,

I have a question regarding forecasting. I have 7 years of data (2010-2016, on monthly basis) of sales in different age-classes and I was to predict/forecast the sales in 2017.

 

I have data on the popualtion in each age group from 2010-2016 and also the predicited popualtion for 2017.

 

How is the easiest way to build this model in SAS?

 

Thanks!

Thomas

Look at the options under SAS/ETS - PROC FORECAST

PS. I've moved your question to the SAS Forecasting forum

Do not use PROC FORECAST, it is deprecated.
The simplest way is PROC ESM.
The more sophisticated way is PROC ARIMA.
