Lynx sales dataset


The annual numbers of lynx trappings for 1821–1934 in Canada. This time-series records the number of skins of predators (lynx) that were collected over several years by the Hudson’s Bay Company. The dataset was taken from Brockwell & Davis (1991) and appears to be the series considered by Campbell & Walker (1977).

Dimensionality: univariate Series length: 114 Frequency: Yearly Number of cases: 1

This data shows aperiodic, cyclical patterns, as opposed to periodic, seasonal patterns.
