I'd like to try some of the examples in "simulation models for business planning and economic forecasting" ( https://support.sas.com/rnd/app/ets/papers/simulationmodels.pdf ). Does anybody know where to find the sales-toaster-data?

Hi @user24feb, I contacted the author of the paper and was told it's fake data. But he did provide the code. Hope it helps.

 

Thanks,

If somebody else is ever interested: Add `date = intnx('month', '01JAN89'd, t); format date Date9.;`.
