Just as is the case for the variance of a sample (Variance), the sample auto-covariances of a time series are not unbiased estimates of the auto-covariances of the population from which the series is drawn. Additional computations must be performed to calculate unbiased estimates and error estimates for the time series mean and auto-covariances.
Unlike the case of a sample of uncorrelated values, these computations are complicated and the same computation is relevant for all moments. Therefore, the computation is performed once by this method, which returns a object from which all population statistics can be quickly queried.
