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.
The preview above delivers an overview of the data provided by the U.S. federal statistical system with a special focus on those to be covered in the Economic Measurement Seminar. This preview also highlights examples of common misinterpretations of the data.
