I have 2 lists, representing a time series:
list_a = [23,43,29,45,6,12,240] list_b = [13,23,11,35,60,52,40]
list_a is value in first year....
list_a is values in 7th year.
I want to check if increase in values in
list_a is followed by an increase or decrease in
list_b in the subsequent year. Is there a statistical test that will allow me to do that? The key is looking at the direction of change rather than the magnitude of change.
Even better if I can say something about the temporal linkage between the two lists. I.e, perhaps increase in
list_a precedes changes in
list_b by 2 years.
