Speaker: Ataman Ozyildirim, Senior Director, Economic Indicators, The Conference Board

Moderator: Maurine Haver, CBE, Founder and President, Haver Analytics

Seasonality is a common feature of economic data and if not properly addressed, it can cloud our judgment about what the data are telling us. Seasonal adjustment methodologies have been developed to remove these predictable patterns to reveal the underlying trend and cycle. When is seasonal adjustment appropriate? What are the best methods? What are the pitfalls and challenges in analyzing seasonal and seasonally adjusted data? This session will look at these issues from a user’s perspective to help develop a deeper appreciation for working with economic indicators.
