This is a two days classroom based session, aimed at providing participants with a basic introduction to the theory behind seasonal adjustment and the seasonal adjustment process. An overview is also given of the US Census Bureau’s software X-13-ARIMA-SEATS, which is the GSS recommended software for seasonal adjustment.

• the basic theory underpinning seasonal adjustment;

• issues to consider when publishing seasonally adjusted estimates;

• how to analyse your own time series data.
