Time series forecasting with R involves predicting future values based on past observations in a chronological sequence. Here’s a comprehensive guide covering the modeling and evaluation aspects:

## 1. Understanding Time Series Data:

**Overview:**Time series data is sequential, where observations occur over time. Understand the components of time series data: trend, seasonality, and noise.

`# Load time series data`

my_ts <- ts(data, frequency = 12) # Adjust frequency based on data

## 2. Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA):

**Overview:**Explore patterns, trends, and seasonality in the time series data before modeling.

`# Plot time series data`

plot(my_ts)

## 3. Time Series Modeling:

**ARIMA (AutoRegressive Integrated Moving Average):**ARIMA is a popular time series model that combines autoregression, differencing, and moving averages.

`# Fit ARIMA model`

arima_model <- arima(my_ts, order = c(p, d, q))

**Exponential Smoothing State Space Models (ETS):**ETS models capture seasonality, trend, and error components in a time series.

`# Fit ETS model…`
