Always happy to cause headaches. :-)

I get a 'page not found' error. But I believe you. As I said,
there's more than one way to represent a given time series.

Yes. And it's almost exactly as I suggested. (BTW, for the
person playing along at home, this is example 20.16 in PROC MODEL
in the SAS 9.1.3 docs. You'll never find it otherwise.) The
SAS doc says to use NPREOBS=20 to get a burn-in, exactly as if you
used M=20 in my code. (It's always nice when it turns out the SAS
docs back me up. :-)

Well, a lot of what I say is irrelevant. I often work on the 'million
monkeys at a million typewriters' principle, and just filter the
Seriously, I thought that eventually you might want to expand from an
AR(1) model to something more complex, and I felt sure you wouldn't
want to spend a ton of time fighting through the Yule-Walker equations.
But feel free to ignore whatever I say that's useless. Dale knows
how to. :-)
