Abstract: A network time series describes observations collected at nodes on a network over time. This network may be known, or require construction from the time series or other information, such as location. The NARIMA (Network ARIMA) framework will be introduced which, although similar to VARMA modelling, allows for changes in the network structure over time. This framework allows modelling and forecasting of large data-sets using few model parameters. As in univariate time series modelling, it is important to take account of any changes in the trend of the network time series. Methods for removing trend will be discussed and demonstrated using an epidemiological example.
