ARIMA MODELS OF IRON ORE FLOWS-BY PORT OF ENTRY AND GRADE OF ORE

The problem of modeling iron ore flows by port of entry is considered. A family of seasonal autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models is used, and the interpretation of results is discussed. The relative performance of various possible models is discussed, and chosen models are used to forecast the trend of imported iron ore in the United Kingdom. Difficulties in interpretation of the forecast from a model based on a transformed data set are also considered.
