Structural Time Series Analyser, Modeller and Predictor
STAMP is a statistical / econometric software system for time series models with unobserved components such as trend, seasonal, cycle and irregular. It provides a user-friendly environment for the analysis, modelling and forecasting of time series. Estimation and signal extraction is carried out using state space methods and Kalman filtering. However, STAMP is set up in an easy-to-use form which enables the user to concentrate on model selection and interpretation. STAMP 8.30 is an integrated part of the OxMetrics modular software system for data analysis with excellent data manipulation and batch facilities.
The full name of STAMP is Structural Time Series Analyser, Modeller and Predictor. Structural time series models are formulated directly in terms of components of interest and also therefore often referred to as unobserved component time series models. Such models find application in many subjects, including economics, finance, sociology, management science, biology, geography, meteorology and engineering. STAMP bridges the gap between the theory and its application; providing the necessary tool to make interactive structural time series modelling available for empirical work. Another such tool is SsfPack, which provides more general procedures for the programming interface Ox.

Find the Signal in Your Time Series
Time Series Lab
Time Series Lab represents a family of software programs designed to model and forecast time series. Time Series Lab programs are standalone installers and do not require additional software to be installed. Time Series Lab can be downloaded from https://www.timeserieslab.com. Currently, there are three Time Series Lab programs that can be downloaded for free:
- State Space Edition
- Dynamic score Edition
- Sport statistics Edition
The Time Series Lab - State Space Edition uses the same computing engine that STAMP does, namely SsfPack. SsfPack is a set of C routines for carrying out computations involving the statistical analysis of time series models in state space form. The extremely efficient State Space algorithms result in fast optimisation times even for large systems. When working with large datasets the optimised algorithms are an important asset in keeping estimation times as low as possible.
