RE: st: autoregression on dummy varialbe
This is really the same question, and a question posed
to you earlier about how why you think this would make sense
has not been answered.
However, we see here some (or perhaps all) of the data.
x takes one of two values, so your data are from a
discrete distribution. I think it difficult to see why an AR model would
be appropriate here. Possibly a Markov chain, which is loosely equivalent,
would make more sense.
There are 4 values of 0 and 4 values of 1 in this sample. Thus
the data are symmetrically distributed. No one-to-one
transformation that I could think of appears either necessary
or useful in this circumstance.
If these really are all the data, you are also challenged on
the score of sample size.
