Calculating a 5-Year Moving Average Example

Sample Problem:Calculate a five-year moving average from the following data set:

Year Sales ($M)
2003    4
2004    6
2005    5
2006    8
2007    9
2008    5
2009    4
2010    3
2011    7
2012    8

The mean (average) sales for the first five years (2003-2007) is calculated by finding the mean from the first five years (i.e. adding the five sales totals and dividing by 5). This gives you the moving average for 2005 (the center year) = 6.4M:

Year Sales ($M)
2003   4
2004   6
2005   5
2006   8
2007   9

(4M + 6M + 5M + 8M + 9M) / 5 = 6.4M

The average sales for the second subset of five years (2004 – 2008), centered around 2006, is 6.6M:
(6M + 5M + 8M + 9M + 5M) / 5 = 6.6M

The average sales for the third subset of five years (2005 – 2009), centered around 2007, is 6.6M:
(5M + 8M + 9M + 5M + 4M) / 5 = 6.2M

Continue calculating each five-year average, until you reach the end of the set (2009-2013). This gives you a series of points (averages) that you can use to plot a chart of moving averages. The following Excel table shows you the moving averages calculated for 2003-2012 along with a scatter plot of the data:

to calculate 5 months moving average for jan 14
u hv to add values from the month of aug - dec, then divide the ans with 5. then u will get the value for jan 14 or the next month.

so what is answer for part C .. which method is better ? 

five moving average method is best
