The Time Series Data Generator allows you to quickly and easily generate time series data for use in questions and examples.


The time series data generator opens the above dialog box.  To generate your data:


Enter the number of data points to generate.
Choose the regression equation
Enter the parameters for the equation (a, b and c).  The c parameter is only used for quadratic regression equations.
Enter the cycle length required.
Set the noise (random) component slider.  If the slider is fully to the left, there will be no random component to the data.  Fully to the right and the pattern may not be recognisable.
Set the volatility (cyclic) component slider.  This determines how “dramatic” the cycle is.
Enter the column that the data will be put into.
