Hash Objects: When LAGging Behind Just Doesn’t Work

Friday, May 5 l 11 a.m. – Noon ET

IFSUG logo

This complimentary webinar is hosted by the Insurance and Finance SAS Users Group (IFSUG).

When modeling time series data, we often use a LAG of the dependent variable. The LAG function works great for this, until you try to predict out into the future and need the model's predicted value from one record as an independent value for a future record. This webinar examines exactly how the LAG function works, and explains why it doesn't in this case.

You’ll also learn how to:

  • Create a hash object that will accomplish a LAG of any value.
  • Load the initial data.
  • Add predicted values to the hash object.
  • Extract those values when needed as an independent variable for future observations.

Space is not limited for this webinar. Please register to attend live or to receive the on-demand content after the event.
