Prediction with nested series


  • HI,

    I need to predict users searches according to date, user age and searched it self ( historical data)

    user age = how old was the user while searched...

    sample data

    Date          User Age     Searches
    2014-04-07 1 780741
    2014-04-08 1 859272
    2014-04-08 2 252675
    2014-04-09 1 784794
    2014-04-09 2 244928
    2014-04-09 3 207036
    2014-04-10 1 825304
    2014-04-10 2 255670
    2014-04-10 3 194940
    2014-04-10 4 164978

     What I need is to predict searches according to the date and the user age and predict what will be the search amount for next days .Because I have a "nested" series for each date, it make this complex...   Any thoughts?T  hanks,Ronen

  • Please help me understand what exactly you are trying to predict.

    Are you trying to predict total number of searches that users will do in the future split by age?

    Are you trying to predict what items specific user might be interested in?
