Re: where can find Hand on forecast documentation

Hi Jade,

The best free online book with step by step examples is Forecasting: Principles and Practice by Rob Hyndman and George Athana­sopou­los

https://www.otexts.org/book/fpp

They used R in the book to illustrate the examples to users. We have converted the R data to SAS dataset as well as the equivalent SAS codes for users just like you to learn forecasting using SAS. Smiley Embarassed You can get the SAS dataset and SAS code from the following github:

https://github.com/alexchienTW/SAS-Viya-Forecast-Cookbook

The github contains SAS codes for both SAS 9.4 and SAS Viya.

 

Have fun with it.

Alex
