## Assignment Description

ECON 102: First Assignment

For this assignment, create a PDF with your preferred text processor and insert your charts and discussion when needed. Upload the file to the Learn Dropbox before it closes.

Answer the question using the data file. It is an artificial time series from 1950 to 2020. For the exercise, we assume that it is a series of consumption expenditure in thousands of dollars. For each chart that you create, add a main title and axis titles. When the chart contains more than one line, use a different color and shape for each line and add a legend.

### Part A: Visualization

1.    Plot the series using a line chart. Briefly describe what you see: Is it a positive or negative trend? Is the trend increasing? What kind of short term fluctuations do you observe?

2.    Answer the previous question using the log-scale. Can you tell if the growth rate is increasing or decreasing on average over the period?

3.    To better see how the growth rate evolves through time, plot the annualized growth rate of consumption expenditure. Describe what you see. Is it constant on average?

### Part B: Time Series Decomposition

1.    Fit a linear and quadratic trends to your series. Then, create a line chart with your original series and the two trends. Which trend seems to best fit the series? Explain.

2.    Fit a linear and quadratic trends to the log of your series. Then, create a line chart with the log of your series and the two trends. Which trend seems to best fit the series? Do you see a difference between the best trend in this question and in the previous one? Explain.

Answer the following questions using the log of your series and the trends computed in question 2.

3.    Plot the detrended series using the trend that best fit the series. Briefly describe what you see: Do you better detect short term fluctuations?

4.    Using a moving average of order 5, compute the cyclical component of your series. Then, plot the cycle and briefly describe what you see: interpret the values of some peaks and troughs.

5.    Plot the low frequency of your series and briefly describe what you see.

6.    Compute the seasonal component and represent it on a bar chart (only the 4 quarters). Interpret the four seasonal values.

### Part C: Comovement

For this part, select any other series in the file assignment1.zip and answer the following questions:

Create a scatter plot of your series expressed in logs against the selected series also expressed in logs.

Using the log of the selected series, compute its cyclical component. Then create a scatter plot of this cycle with the cycle of your series computed in Part B.

• Looking at the two scatter plots, what can you say about the type of comovement between the two series?

Is it free to get my assignment evaluated?

Yes. No hidden fees. You pay for the solution only, and all the explanations about how to run it are included in the price. It takes up to 24 hours to get a quote from an expert. In some cases, we can help you faster if an expert is available, but you should always order in advance to avoid the risks. You can place a new order here.

How much does it cost?

The cost depends on many factors: how far away the deadline is, how hard/big the task is, if it is code only or a report, etc. We try to give rough estimates here, but it is just for orientation (in USD):

 Regular homework \$20 - \$150 Advanced homework \$100 - \$300 Group project or a report \$200 - \$500 Mid-term or final project \$200 - \$800 Live exam help \$100 - \$300 Full thesis \$1000 - \$3000

How do I pay?

Credit card or PayPal. You don't need to create/have a Payal account in order to pay by a credit card. Paypal offers you "buyer's protection" in case of any issues.

Why do I need to pay in advance?

We have no way to request money after we send you the solution. PayPal works as a middleman, which protects you in case of any disputes, so you should feel safe paying using PayPal.

Do you do essays?

No, unless it is a data analysis essay or report. This is because essays are very personal and it is easy to see when they are written by another person. This is not the case with math and programming.

Why there are no discounts?

It is because we don't want to lie - in such services no discount can be set in advance because we set the price knowing that there is a discount. For example, if we wanted to ask for \$100, we could tell that the price is \$200 and because you are special, we can do a 50% discount. It is the way all scam websites operate. We set honest prices instead, so there is no need for fake discounts.

Do you do live tutoring?

No, it is simply not how we operate. How often do you meet a great programmer who is also a great speaker? Rarely. It is why we encourage our experts to write down explanations instead of having a live call. It is often enough to get you started - analyzing and running the solutions is a big part of learning.

What happens if I am not satisfied with the solution?

Another expert will review the task, and if your claim is reasonable - we refund the payment and often block the freelancer from our platform. Because we are so harsh with our experts - the ones working with us are very trustworthy to deliver high-quality assignment solutions on time.
