R.G. Shami and Ralph Snyder ()

No 10/97, Monash Econometrics and Business Statistics Working Papers from Monash University, Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics

Abstract: A parsimonious method of exponential smoothing is introduced for time series generated from a combination of local trends and local seasonal effects. It is compared with the additive version of the Holt-Winters method of forecasting on a standard collection of real time series.
