Econometrics: What is time-series data?

Time series data is points of information achieved successively at equally spaced periods of time.

An example of time series data used in econometrics would be that of share price movements. These data points increase, decrease or remain the same and can be plotted accordingly. These respective data points are often plotted in a line graph to give a visual representation of the performance of the stock in question. Other examples of data that occurs in a time series is weather reports or  population censuses.
