I think that the best way is to test the original series for stationarity (Dickey-Fuller related testes) and then use the traditional modeling techniques.
However, if you have intervention, I suppose you need two things to do:
1) Traditional intervention analyses: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/etsug/60372/HTML/default/viewer.htm#etsug_arima_sect013.htm
2) Testing for unit root with breaking trends and variance.

Assunto: Time series
I have some time series data that consist of measurements on individuals at one time point (length of treatment, total costs in constant dollars).
The data set has several years of such measurements and my question concerns pre- and post-intervention trends in the outcomes (with all the caveats about rival hypotheses).
I'm not sure whether to treat the individuals as the unit of analysis or to average everyone's outcomes on a monthly basis. Not having done a lot of time series analysis I'm not sure what questions I need to answer in order to come to a conclsion about whether or not to average.
I know in economic data concepts like stationarity are important and analyses are typically of avaerage or total sales, so that seems to imply some monthly average and differencing is required.
Can someone help me out?
