State Space Modeling Essentials Using the SSM Procedure in SAS/ETS(R)
Course code: FSSM42
This course covers the fundamentals of building and applying state space models using the SSM procedure (SAS/ETS). Students are presented with an overview of the model and learn advantages of the State Space approach. The course also describes fundamental model details, presents some straightforward examples of specifying and fitting models using the SSM procedure, and considers estimation in SSM, focusing on the Kalman filter and related details. The course concludes with a variety of SSM modeling applications, focused mainly on time series.
