For instance the "Seriesg" example data set in JMP (the airline passengers set) shows a steady increase in the "log Passengers" variable. It has a cyclic pattern and the "JMP Start Statistics" book discusses this on pg 531.

But what I cannot find anywhere is a way to get a t-test on the slope of the trend.

It is clear this trend isn't hard to see, but if I have noisier data and I'd like to get a t-test on the slope of a linear regression on the trend that isn't biased due to autocorrelation, how do I do that?

Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't have SAS, I use JMP. What does the SAS proc include? Is there an analogue in the JMP software?

Thanks,

I got best results using an autoregressive order 3 and a seasonal autoregressive order 1, with time checked as a simple input. The residuals are not autocorrelated, and slope is siginficant t < 0.0001.
