# Arima

From forecast v2.06

##### Fit ARIMA model to univariate time series

Largely a wrapper for the `arima`

function in the stats package. The main difference is that this function
allows a drift term. It is also possible to
take an ARIMA model from a previous call to `Arima`

and re-apply it to the data `x`

.

- ts

##### Usage

```
Arima(x, order = c(0, 0, 0), seasonal = list(order = c(0, 0, 0), period = NA),
xreg = NULL, include.mean = TRUE, include.drift = FALSE,
transform.pars = TRUE, fixed = NULL, init = NULL,
method = c("CSS-ML", "ML", "CSS"), n.cond,
optim.control = list(), kappa = 1e6, model=NULL)
```

##### Arguments

- x
- a univariate time series
- order
- A specification of the non-seasonal part of the ARIMA model: the three components (p, d, q) are the AR order, the degree of differencing, and the MA order.
- seasonal
- A specification of the seasonal part of the ARIMA model, plus the period (which defaults to frequency(x)). This should be a list with components order and period, but a specification of just a numeric vector of length 3 will be turned into a suitable list
- xreg
- Optionally, a vector or matrix of external regressors, which must have the same number of rows as x.
- include.mean
- Should the ARIMA model include a mean term? The default is TRUE for undifferenced series, FALSE for differenced ones (where a mean would not affect the fit nor predictions).
- include.drift
- Should the ARIMA model include a linear drift term? (i.e., a linear regression with ARIMA errors is fitted.) The default is FALSE.
- transform.pars
- Logical. If true, the AR parameters are transformed to ensure that they remain in the region of stationarity. Not used for method = "CSS".
- fixed
- optional numeric vector of the same length as the total number of parameters. If supplied, only NA entries in fixed will be varied. transform.pars = TRUE will be overridden (with a warning) if any AR parameters are fixed. It may be wise to set transform.p
- init
- optional numeric vector of initial parameter values. Missing values will be filled in, by zeroes except for regression coefficients. Values already specified in fixed will be ignored.
- method
- Fitting method: maximum likelihood or minimize conditional sum-of-squares. The default (unless there are missing values) is to use conditional-sum-of-squares to find starting values, then maximum likelihood.
- n.cond
- Only used if fitting by conditional-sum-of-squares: the number of initial observations to ignore. It will be ignored if less than the maximum lag of an AR term.
- optim.control
- List of control parameters for optim.
- kappa
- the prior variance (as a multiple of the innovations variance) for the past observations in a differenced model. Do not reduce this.
- model
- Output from a previous call to
`Arima`

. If model is passed, this same model is fitted to`x`

without re-estimating any parameters.

##### Details

```
fit <- Arima(WWWusage,order=c(3,1,0))
plot(forecast(fit,h=20))
air.model <- Arima(AirPassengers[1:100],c(0,1,1))
air.model2 <- Arima(AirPassengers,model=air.model)
outofsample <- ts(fitted(air.model2)[-c(1:100)],s=1957+4/12,f=12)
```
