Describe in Detail

Discuss the relevance of variate difference method in time series analysis data. Show that

Explanation

Relevance of variate difference method:

Although many different formulas are used to measure the random component in a time series, , the variate difference method fits the best, because this method method enables us to estimate the variance of the random component in a series. The variate difference method does not require the specification of a

Describe in Detail

Explain circular systematic sampling. Show that minimum value of ρ is , when , where ρis intraclass correlation and is the sample mean.

Explanation

Circular systematic sampling

This method consists of choosing a random start from 1 to N and selecting the unit corresponding to the random start and thereafter every kth unit in a cyclic manner till a sample of size n units is obtained, k being the integer nearest to .

That is, if r is the number selected at random from 1 to N, the sample cons
