Is there a clear way to include static variables e.g. elevation as covariates in the CausalImpact pacakge. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

  • $\begingroup$ Although the post (in its original form) appears to focus on software, there may be a statistical question here--but if so, could you formulate it explicitly for us? What would "include static variables as covariates" amount to in terms of a statistical model or procedure? $\endgroup$ – whuber Feb 4 at 19:24
  • $\begingroup$ @whuber ; I'm referring to time series analysis [similar to ARIMA models] specific to the CausalImpact package implemented in r. In the model formulation, you have time-varying covariates; i'm interested in fixed variables that do not change over time. Are you familiar with the package? $\endgroup$ – Anand Roopsind Feb 5 at 20:21
