Keywords: ARIMA, GARMA, AIC, Covid-19, Indonesia


The development of methods in statistics, one of which is used for prediction, is overgrowing. So it requires further analysis related to the goodness of the method. One of the comparisons made to the goodness of this model can be seen by applying it to actual cases around us. The real case still being faced by people worldwide, including in Indonesia, is Covid-19. Therefore, research comparing the autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) and the Gegenbauer autoregressive moving average (GARMA) method in positive confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Indonesia is essential. Based on the results of this research analysis, it was found that the best model with the Aikake's Information Criterion measure of goodness that was used to predict positive confirmed cases of Covid-19 in Indonesia was the Gegenbauer autoregressive moving average (GARMA) model.
