Abstract [en]

We look at the economic performance of the main (coal mining) company operating inSvalbardbased on time series data from 1922 to 2006 and use statistical techniques to detect structural breaks in economic indicators decomposed into components that the company control or influence and components that are exogenous. The analysis suggests distinctive historical periods and illustrates that statistical time series analysis may be used as a screening device to discriminate between noise and real change.
