accuracy.gts: In-sample or out-of-sample accuracy measures for forecast...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/accuracy-gts.R

Description

Returns a range of summary measures of the forecast accuracy. The function measures out-of-sample forecast accuracy based on (holdout data - forecasts) and in-sample accuracy at the bottom level when setting keep.fitted = TRUE in the forecast.gts. All measures are defined and discussed in Hyndman and Koehler (2006).

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'gts'
accuracy(f, test, levels, ...)

Arguments

f

An object of class gts, containing the forecasted hierarchical or grouped time series. In-sample accuracy at the bottom level returns when test is missing.

test

An object of class gts, containing the holdout hierarchical time series

levels

Return the specified level(s), when carrying out out-of-sample

...

Extra arguments to be ignored

Details

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

Value

Matrix giving forecast accuracy measures.
