Computes the goodness of fit measure (e.g., log-likelihood function (LLF), AIC, etc.) of the estimated ARIMA model.

## Syntax

**ARMA_GOF**(

**X**,

**Order**,

**mean**,

**sigma**,

**phi**,

**theta**,

**Type**)

- X
- is the univariate time series data (a one-dimensional array of cells (e.g., rows or columns)).
- Order
- is the time order in the data series (i.e., the first data point's corresponding date (earliest date=1 (default), latest date=0)).
Order Description 1 ascending (the first data point corresponds to the earliest date) (default) 0 descending (the first data point corresponds to the latest date) - mean
- is the ARMA model long-run mean (i.e., mu).
- sigma
- is the standard deviation of the model's residuals/innovations.
- phi
- are the parameters of the AR(p) component model (starting with the lowest lag).
- theta
- are the parameters of the MA(q) component model (starting with the lowest lag).
- Type
- is an integer switch to select the goodness of fitness measure: (1=LLF (default), 2=AIC, 3=BIC, 4=HQC)
Order Description 1 Log-Likelihood Function (LLF) (default) 2 Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) 3 Schwarz/Bayesian Information Criterion (SIC/BIC) 4 Hannan-Quinn information criterion (HQC)

## Remarks

- The underlying model is described here.
- The Log-Likelihood Function (LLF) is described here.
- The time series is homogeneous or equally spaced.
- The time series may include missing values (e.g., #N/A) at either end.
- The long-run mean can take any value or be omitted, in which a zero value is assumed.
- The residuals/innovations standard deviation (sigma) must be greater than zero.
- For the input argument - phi:
- The input argument is optional and can be omitted, so no AR component is included.
- The order of the parameters starts with the lowest lag.
- One or more parameters may have missing values or an error code (i.e., #NUM!, #VALUE!, etc.).
- The order of the last value solely determines the order of the AR component model in the array with a numeric value (vs. missing or error).

- For the input argument - theta:
- The input argument is optional and can be omitted, so no MA component is included.
- The order of the parameters starts with the lowest lag.
- One or more values in the input argument can be missing or an error code (i.e., #NUM!, #VALUE!, etc.).
- The order of the last value solely determines the order of the MA component model in the array with a numeric value (vs. missing or error).

- Missing parameters values reduce the model's actual number of overall parameters, thus improving the AIC, BIC, and HQC statistics.
- The function was added in version 1.63 SHAMROCK.
