Time-Series Analysis of Stature, Body Weight and Urinary Excreted Substances in Five Siblings

  • Masami Togo
  • Tomoko Togo


We have been observing since 1971 stature and body weight of five siblings, Af, Bm, Cf, Df and Em (showing male or female with suffix m or f) from a single family; ages in July 1982 were 20, 19, 17, 14 and 11 years respectively. Observations are made monthly (Togo and Togo, 1982). Data is processed by the Census Method X 11 developed for time-series analysis by the U.S. Census Bureau. Original time-series 0 is assumed to consist of three components, namely trend-and-cycle factor C, seasonal factor S and irregular factor I, so that
$$O = C + S + I]$$
