Macro-fiscal analysis
Technical workshop

A review of time-series analysis

SA-TIED research specialists in statistics, quantitative analysis, and econometrics, from the workstream on macroeconomic modelling for policy formulation, will host a two day workshop in Pretoria, South Africa at the National Treasury. The workshop is designed to refresh and update National Treasury staff on the statistical uses and limitations of time-series analysis for longitudinal economic datasets. Treasury officials with the Economic Policy, Financial Sector Policy, and Tax Policy units must routinely make assessments and analyses of the South African economy using time-series analysis, and this work shop is intended to improve National Treasury capacity in this arena. 

The workshop is open to National Treasury staff and other invitees from the economics cluster in South Africa.
