Technique for predicting categorical variable in a time series data



Hi All,

I am working on a data set that is time dependent. Can anyone please suggest best forecasting technique that predicts a categorical variable or is there any transformation required for converting the converting the categorical to a continuous variable and then use for predicting the value.

Thanks in advance


Please provide more details like how you do in stackflow.

To answer in generic, predict time series for each category and consolidate.
