Accuracy measures for forecast model

Returns range of summary measures of the forecast accuracy. If x is provided, the function measures out-of-sample (test set) forecast accuracy based on x-f. If x is not provided, the function only produces in-sample (training set) accuracy measures of the forecasts based on f["x"]-fitted(f). All measures are defined and discussed in Hyndman and Koehler (2006).

Usage
accuracy(f, x, test="all")
Arguments
f
An object of class "forecast", or a numerical vector containing forecasts. It will also work with Arima, ets and lm objects if x is omitted -- in which case in-sample accuracy measures are r
x
An optional numerical vector containing actual values of the same length as object, or a time series overlapping with the times of f.
test
Indicator of which elements of x and f to test. If test=="all", all elements are used. Otherwise test is a numeric vector containing the indices of the elements to use in the test.
Details

MASE calculation is scaled using MAE of in-sample naive forecasts for non-seasonal time series, in-sample seasonal naive forecasts for seasonal time series and in-sample mean forecasts for non-time series data.

Value

• Matrix giving forecast accuracy measures.
