Competition Data Format

Data file containing time series to be predicted is a text file having the following format:

  • Each row contains a single time series data record;
  • items in the row are delimited with semicolon (";");
  • the first item is an ID of the time series;
  • the second item determines the forecasting horizon, i.e., the number of values to be forecasted;
  • the third item determines the frequency of the time series (this year "monthly" only);
  • the rest of the row contains numeric data of the time series;
  • the number of values in each row may differ because each time series is of different length.
