Overview of this book

Data analysis enables you to generate value from small and big data by discovering new patterns and trends, and Python is one of the most popular tools for analyzing a wide variety of data. With this book, you’ll get up and running using Python for data analysis by exploring the different phases and methodologies used in data analysis and learning how to use modern libraries from the Python ecosystem to create efficient data pipelines. Starting with the essential statistical and data analysis fundamentals using Python, you’ll perform complex data analysis and modeling, data manipulation, data cleaning, and data visualization using easy-to-follow examples. You’ll then understand how to conduct time series analysis and signal processing using ARMA models. As you advance, you’ll get to grips with smart processing and data analytics using machine learning algorithms such as regression, classification, Principal Component Analysis (PCA), and clustering. In the concluding chapters, you’ll work on real-world examples to analyze textual and image data using natural language processing (NLP) and image analytics techniques, respectively. Finally, the book will demonstrate parallel computing using Dask. By the end of this data analysis book, you’ll be equipped with the skills you need to prepare data for analysis and create meaningful data visualizations for forecasting values from data.

Autoregressive models

Autoregressive models are time-series models used to predict future incidents. The following formula shows this:

In the preceding formula, c is a constant and the last term is a random component, also known as white noise.

Let's build the autoregression model using the statsmodels.tsa subpackage:

  1. Import the libraries and read the dataset:
# import needful libraries
from statsmodels.tsa.ar_model import AR
from sklearn.metrics import mean_absolute_error
from sklearn.metrics import mean_squared_error
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import statsmodels.api as sm
from math import sqrt

# Read the dataset
data = sm.datasets.sunspots.load_pandas().data
  1. Split the Sunspot data into train and test sets:
# Split data into train and test set

  1. Train and fit the autoregressive model:
# AutoRegression Model training
ar_model = AR(train...
