Store statistics for Single Exponential Smoothing

Stat > Time Series > Single Exp Smoothing > Storage

You can save statistics from your analysis to the worksheet so that you can use them in other analyses, graphs, and macros. Minitab stores the selected statistics after the last column of data. The names of the storage columns end with a number that increases as you store the same statistic multiple times.

The statistics that are available for storage depend on the options that you select for the analysis. For more details on any statistics, go to All statistics and graphs.

Statistics that you can store

Smoothed data
Stores the smoothed data, one row for each observation. Minitab stores the values in the column SMOO.
Fits (one-period-ahead forecasts)
Stores the predicted value of each observation, which is the smoothed value from the previous period, one row for each observation. Minitab stores the values in the column FITS.
Residuals
Stores the difference between the actual value and the predicted value, one row for each observation. Minitab stores the values in the column RESI.
Forecasts
Stores the forecast for each observation that you specify in Number of forecasts on the main dialog box, one row for each observation. Minitab stores the values in the column FORE.
Upper 95% prediction limits
Stores the upper 95% prediction limits of the forecasts, one row for each forecast. Minitab stores the values in the column UPPE.
Lower 95% prediction limits
Stores the lower 95% prediction limits of the forecasts, one row for each forecast. Minitab stores the values in the column LOWE.
